At Trident Container Leasing B.V., you can buy and lease shipping containers with different shipping container wall dimensions. We have the Standard containers, but also the special containers made for special cargo. We have, for instance, the Flat Rack containers, the Pallet Wide containers and the Open Top containers. Please find below the different container types and dimensions (external and internal). Or contact our sales team to get more information and advice.
The below container internal dimensions are standardized by ISO for guidance only. There may be occasional minor deviations.
Standard Containers dimensions (20 ft, 40 ft ,40 ft HC and 45 ft HCPW)
The American Malcolm P. McLean is considered the inventor of this mode of transport by using a container for the first time to avoid transshipments at ports. These containers were constructed according to American rules and were not adequate for European road transport. It took some years until the ISO standards for containers that are still valid to this day were introduced
The standard containers we sell, lease and rent are:
Reefer Containers (20ft , 40ft, 45ft Reefer)
Reefer containers are special refrigerated containers. Their temperature can be adapted individually according to the goods in question. Our Reefer shipping containers have their own cooling system and get the necessary electricity from the vessel. To ensure a smooth transport without quality loss, the temperature is controlled before and regularly during the transit.
The Reefer containers we sell, lease and rent are:
Flat Rack Containers (20ft and 40ft Flat Rack)
Flat racks are containers without sidewalls or a roof. They have vertical front sides. This way, bulky cargo with over dimensions – like big machinery parts – can be shipped. The cargo is fixed and lashed on the flat racks with belts and chains to ensure safe transit.
The Flat Rack containers we sell, lease and rent are:
Open Top Containers (20 ft and 40 ft Open Top)
These containers have a tarpaulin instead of a hard roof. Goods that cannot be loaded through the doors of a Standard container can be stuffed through the top. In addition, cargoes with over height can be shipped in Open Top containers on board the sea ship.
The Open Top containers we sell, lease and rent are:
Pallet Wide Containers (40 ft, 40 ft High Cube Pallet Wide, 45ft High Cube Pallet Wide Reefer)
Trident has a relatively large fleet of Pallet Wide containers. As you can guess from the name, these containers are adequate for shipping Euro-pallets because the interior dimensions are slightly wider than the dimensions of a Standard container.
The Pallet Wide containers we sell, lease and rent are:
