Container Dimensions

Dry Containers (General)These containers are for general cargo and are suitable for most types. They are constructed in standardised sizes but may have slight internal capacity and tare weight variations.

Dry Containers (High Cube) The high cube dry containers are different in dimensions and are ideal for light and bulky cargo.  Please note – 20’ Hi Cubes are less common and may be difficult for us to supply over some routes.

The gross container weights are generally restricted to around 26 tonnes for NZ domestic swinglift operation, or 28.5 tonnes on a skeletal trailer. There are exceptions, so please discuss your specific requirements with us.

Swinglift trucks swing the container off to the right, or driver’s side, so we will need to establish at the time you order your container whether you require the container doors facing forward or rear.
