TYPE B bamboo floor

This type B dry container is equipped with a bamboo floor. This material has proven its strength and is environmentally friendly and sustainable.

Our 9ft 6in 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.

The advantages of the 45ft dry container type B:

  • High strength environmentally friendly bamboo floor
  • Move more for less
  • Compatible with 40ft infrastructure
  • Extremely low tare weight

The 45ft container is the intermodal transport system of the future. Our 45ft dry 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.

UNIT45 design is constantly revised to take account of new technology, materials and environment as they become available and proven in service. All our 45ft containers are painted with waterborne paint.

The precise specification of our 45ft pallet-wide container can be modified to meet differing needs. The height and width can be varied to meet customers’ need or restrictions on certain routes. And while our standard stacking height capabilities exceed most shortsea users’ requirements, these can be uprated if necessary.

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.

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 dry unit type B is suitable for intermodal transport of cargo on rail, road and sea.
