The 45ft bulk container is suited for road and rail transport. All bulk container designs can also accommodate general cargo including palletized goods, thus reducing the need for empty backhauls.

The advantages of the 45ft bulk container:

-        Suitable for transport and storage of bulk cargo

-        Stainless steel roof and discharge hatches

-        Compatible with 40ft infrastructure

-        Sustainable and environmentally friendly

UNIT45 designed the 45ft bulk container for special applications where the principal traffic is either very light or is being moved solely by water or rail, in which case its 40-tonne payload capability can be fully exploited.

All bulk designs are fitted with a ‘letterbox’ discharge hatch, enabling them to be dis-charged using tipping trailers. Conventional double doors are fitted to the other end of all the bulk containers in our fleet. Stainless steel hatches are provided for top loading. UNIT45 notes that many of its customers are now using bulk containers to store product during stages of the logistics cycle rather than go to the expense of discharging the containers into silos and later reloading road vehicles for final delivery.

The 45ft container is the intermodal transport unit 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. Our 45ft bulk containers are made with an environmentally friendly bamboo floor. All our 45ft containers are painted with waterborne paint.

Our 45ft bulk 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 bulk 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. After signature of the contract or payment in case of purchase, the containers are released at the depot Rotterdam, depending on availability.

The 45ft bulk container is also available in 20ft and 30ft and all are suitable for intermodal transport of bulk cargo on rail, road and sea.
