Product Description

Perfect for heavy or dense freight such as grain, ammonium nitrate or salt, the flat internal walls and floor reduce product hang-up. The full-width letterbox hatch allows for ease of discharge to reduce cleaning and waster product. The units are built with 3 roof hatches for quick loading to enable efficient container turnaround and utilisation.

Our bulk shipping containers are also ideal for the transportation and storage of cargo such as fertiliser, food, stock feed and more. Our container manufacturing process ensures maximum durability and multiple design features to protect against container damage and prevent deformation under load.

Options available for our Bulk Container include:

  • BK2 Compliant paint for DG cargo and increased longevity
  • Smooth Internal Walls to reduce product hang up when unloading and make cleaning easier or Standard Slim Profile Corrugated Walls that are lighter and more cost effective.
