Imagine a taller version of a standard container and you have a high-cube container.
While standard containers are built to a maximum height of 2591 mm or 8’6″, high-cube containers are 2896 mm, or 9’6″, tall. Most high-cube containers are 40′ long, but some are constructed as 45′ containers.
Maximum bearing loads of 1000 kg can be achieved thanks to a number of lashing rings mounted on the front top-end rail, bottom cross-member and the container corner posts. High-cube containers are particularly suitable for transporting light, voluminous cargoes and overheight cargoes.
