More about High Cube Container
Akin to standard ISO shipping containers, high cube containers are made of durable steel or aluminum. Within these containers consist of many lashing rings installed around the container, from top to bottom to side, and on all four corners of the space. These rings allow carriage of a maximum load of 1000kg. However, high cube containers have a similar amount of gross weight as standard containers, standing at roughly 30,480kg.
Some high cube containers are designed with recesses in the base, which allows balancing of the containers on the container chassis trailer, which allows it to lay lower and be of higher construction.
Most transport services don’t charge more either because both types of containers have roughly the length.
