34 PALLETS 2.50m wide

UNIT45’s unique new 34 euro pallet container adds an extra pallet space to its successful 45ft container, which already offers the highest cubic capacity and payload of any standard 45ft container design.

Manufactured with a lightweight bamboo floor as well as special high strength steels, it has an extremely low tare weight - enabling payloads of almost 30,000kgs. This container also has a maximum loading door height, adding to its flexibility and versatility. All containers are handled with self-cleaning waterborne paint.

UNIT45 containers have been successfully used in the testing environment of the European shortsea market for more than 20 years. Their strength and sustainability have been proven during the frequent handling on the short round-trip cycles.

The 34 euro pallet container was designed in response to customer needs and UNIT45 continually revises designs to include new technologies and environmentally-friendly materials once they are approved and tested in service.

The advantages of the 34 pallet container:

  • Capacity to handle 34 pallets
  • Maximum loading door height
  • Compatible with 40ft infrastructure
  • Move more for less

The 45ft container is the intermodal transport system of the future. Our 45ft containers are all compatible with 40ft infrastructure and the design conforms to EU Legislation EN 253. Transporting more with fewer movements and all handled with the same infrastructure as used for 40ft containers.

With their chamfered corner posts and euro corner castings, 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.

We can also modify the height and width to comply with restrictions on certain routes. Stacking height capabilities, although already exceeding most shortsea users’ requirements, can be uprated if needed.

Our 45ft containers can be bought, rented or leased for a certain period. When you send us your enquiry a suitable offer will be made for you. After your acceptance of the offer, the order process is started. Depending on your order, the 45ft containers are especially made in your corporate identity colors and/or decals or directly available from stock in case you wish to rent/lease or buy our containers. Over the last years the rental fleet of UNIT45 containers has grown very fast up to 28000 units. After signature of the contract or payment in case of purchase, the containers are released at the depot Rotterdam, Hamburg or Antwerp of your choice, depending on availability.

The 45ft dry container which gives room to 34 pallets is available in two versions and are both suitable for intermodal transport of cargo on rail, road and sea.
