Bulk Containers
Bulk (or bulk cargo) container is one of the types of containers that is used for shipping. This container has three loading hatches in the roof, each of a diameter of approx. 455 mm (1 3/4'). 1.83 m (6') is the distance between the hatches (center to center). There are two discharge hatches on the door side. They are sometimes equipped with short discharge tubes for guiding the bulk cargo. Alternatively, two unloading hatches may be mounted in the doorways, for emptying the containers.

It is possible to use these containers for general cargo. Lashing rings are mounted in the top side rails for securing the cargo. But there are bulk containers that are equipped with forklift pockets. They allow handling by forklift trucks.

Bulk containers are used in particular for transporting bulk cargo, such as grain, feedstuffs, spices.
