Meeberg is specialized in rebuilding standard 20ft & 40ft containers into Open Top Containers. An open top shipping container is a container with strenght suitable to withstand shipment, storage and handling. These containers are ideal for transporting larger cargo that will not fit through the container doors, with the open top the cargo can be loaded from above. To make the Open Top Container ready for loading, you simply remove the tarpaulin and roof bows. When the container is fully loaded you reverse the process afther which the container is ready for transport to its destination. These special units are built with a removable doorheader and have an internal height of 2,25 meter.

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.
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.
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.
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.
