High-cube containers are comparable in construction to standard containers, yet taller. Rather than standard containers, which have the greatest level of 2591 mm (8'6"), high-cube containers are 2896 mm, or 9'6", tall. High-cube containers are generally 40' long, however, are at times made as 45' containers.
Various lashing rings, fit for bearing heaps of all things considered 1000 kg, are mounted on the front top end rail and base cross-part and the corner posts.
Numerous 40' containers have a break in the floor at the front end which effectively fixates the containers on the supposed gooseneck frame. These breaks permit the containers to lie lower and accordingly to be of taller development.
High-cube containers are utilized for different types of general freight (dry freight). Notwithstanding, they are especially reasonable for shipping light, voluminous cargoes, and overheight cargoes up to 2.70 m tall.
