Open Top Container is ideal for larger cargo

  

At Meeberg we are specialized in rebuilding standard dry box containers into open top containers. An open top container is ideal for larger cargo that needs to be loaded in the container from above. To make the open top container ready for loading, you remove the tarpaulin and roofbows. Once fully loaded, the process is reversed and the container is ready for transport to it's destination. Because Open Top Containers are built from standard dry box containers, the units can be used for intermodal transport worldwide. The fork lift pockets are retained in the rebuild process, so the Open Top Container is easy to handle and move.

rebuilding process

The open top containers are manufactured from the base of a standard unit. To start the transformation the roof is removed to create an open top. After this is done the toprails and removable doorheader will be installed. Inside the container there are several special designed steel plates attached to add extra strenght and stability to the unit. The roofbows will now be placed on the toprails and act, together with the tarpauling, as a replacement roof. This tarp will be attached to the container by using a tir cord and rings. 

Subtainability

We are aware of the environmental changes in the world. That's why we want to create better and greener transportsolutions for our clients. By remanufacturing containers into Rebuild Open Top Containers we extend the life cycle of thes units. 

 

Removable doorheader

With a removable doorheader it is even easier to load large cargo. The doorheader is attached to the container with a hinge, so it can be swivelled out. The height of the doorheader is no longer a limitation during the loading- and unloading-process.     

30 months csc certificate for your open top container

Our approved design for open top containers is unique and it's the only design that is granted with a 30 months CSC certificate in stead of the standard 12 months. 

 

CSC stands voor Convention for Save Containers. All containers that are used for international transport are reauired to have a valid CSC certificate. All our units are inspected by the independent authority DNV GL to ensure proper and quality construction. When the 30 months certificate expires, the open top container can be retested anywhere in the world to renew the certificate.
