Side opening containers are adaptable for many uses from shipping, storage and conversions, offering easy access to larger cargo items.


Originally used by the military to transport ordinance, machinery and equipment due to the easy access they provided, side opening units now have an increasingly wide range of applications in a variety of industry sectors.

As well as being used for specialised engineering purposes, 20ft or 40ft units have become a popular choice for conversion into everything from generator housings to pop-up retail outlets, and mobile exhibition stands. In addition to standard cargo doors at the end of the unit, these containers can be customised to feature concertina or side-panel doors running the full length of the unit.
