40 ft Container, high (High Cube)


High 40ft container НС (HQ) is the most common type of equipment of our company, as most railway operators prefer this type of containers to standard ones. The tall “forty” does not differ structurally from the standard one, but it is higher by an inch (approximately 30 cm). The total height is about 2.9 meters. Its capacity is 10 cubic meters more, and the maximum carrying capacity is 26 460 kg. Transportation for such a container is subject to the same tariff as for standard “forties.” It is suitable for transportation of dry cargo up to 76.5 m3.

This type of container is available for rent or sale throughout Europe, Asia and Central America.
