High-Cube Containers
High-Cube containers are ideal for storing taller items in closed storage or simply for getting more secure storage for a given floorspace. These are containers similar in structure to standard containers, but taller. In contrast to standard containers, which have a maximum height of 2591 mm (8'6"), high-cube containers are 2896 mm, or 9'6", tall.

high_cubeLashing rings, capable of bearing loads of at most 1000 kg, are mounted on the front top end rail and bottom cross member and the corner posts. There is a recess in the floor at the front end which many 40' containers have. It serves to center the containers on so-called gooseneck chassis. Thanks to these recesses, the containers lie lower and therefore are of taller construction.

High-cube containers are used for all types general cargo (dry cargo). Nevertheless, they are particularly suitable for transporting light, voluminous cargoes and overheight cargoes up to a maximum of 2.70 m tall.

They are available in standard 20ft and 40ft lengths, but are sometimes they are made as 45' containers.
