As a leading supplier of container solutions, we offer high-quality dry containers that meet the industry's most stringent standards. Our dry containers are designed to transport your cargo safely and efficiently, whatever the conditions. Whether you want to ship raw materials, semi-finished products or finished products, our containers provide a reliable and sustainable solution.

Specialist in dry containers

Our 9’6 high pallet wide dry freight container offers the highest cubic capacity and payload of any standard 45ft container design. By using special high-strength steels and lightweight floor materials, an extremely low tare weight has been achieved.

Its modified floor structure also makes the 45ft dry container suitable for chassis, as used in road haulage. All our 45ft dry containers are equipped with a gooseneck tunnel therefore in combination with a gooseneck chassis the unit remains within the legally permitted maximum height of 4 meters on the road with a 9'6" high container.

All UNIT45 containers are road-legal throughout the EU and are also well suited for transport on cellular (shortsea) and non-cellular container ships, ro-ro vessels, inland waterway barges and rail wagons due to their chamfered corner post and euro corner castings.

Why should you choose the dry containers  of UNIT45?

1. Quality; our 45ft containers are manufactured to the highest quality standards and made from robust materials that can withstand heavy loads and extreme weather conditions. This ensures that your cargo is well protected at all times.
2. Versatility; the precise specification of our 45ft pallet wide container can be adjusted as required. The height and width can be adjusted entirely according to the wishes of the customer or if necessary due to restrictions on certain routes. And while our standard stacking capabilities exceed the requirements of most shortsea users, they can be upgraded if required. 
3. Efficiency; the 45ft container offers efficiency in all areas of the environment and infrastructure. Thanks to our advanced design and innovative technologies, our dry containers provide maximum loading capacity and minimize fuel consumption. Reduce your costs and carbon footprint by using our 45ft containers.

UNIT45 design is constantly revised to take account of new technology, materials and environment as they become available and proven in service. Our 45ft dry containers are made with an environmentally friendly bamboo floor especially designed by UNIT45. This floor even though it is lighter it does not compromise on strength. All our 45ft containers are painted with waterborne paint.
