Side Opening Containers Melbourne

It is thought that the first side-opening shipping containers were designed by military engineers for rapid deployment of vehicles and weaponry during campaigns. Like many systems initially developed for use in battle, their practical and utilitarian nature also makes them ideal for commercial use, thanks to their robust, no-nonsense construction.

At Shipping Containers Melbourne, we have greatly refined the design of our side-opening units and can now offer you a choice of 20 or 40-foot models, both built from high-grade, corrosion-resistant Corten steel. Used primarily for the transportation sea cargoes, they can now be found fulfilling countless roles across Australia and the world. You will see them lining the docks at Port Melbourne; providing equipment storage on the city’s ever-increasing number of construction sites and riding on the back of trans-continental trains. They truly are the ultra-reliable workhorse of the heavy haulage industry.
