Open top containers are specialised solutions which offer cost-effectiveness and flexibility, their crucial benefit being the ability to load via the roof of the unit. With a weather-resistant tarpaulin covering rather than a solid roof, open tops allow you to transport oversized material such as large machinery, timber, metal or scrap which can best be loaded by crane from above. Eldapoint also offers hard-top containers (middle image below) which rather than a tarpaulin top they have a removable steel roof.
