4. OPEN TOP CONTAINER

Open-top containers can be loaded from the top. This is especially helpful when dealing with goods or mortar with a crane or forklift truck. An open-top container has no fixed roof, it can be covered by a tarpaulin instead.

5. FLAT RACK CONTAINER

Flat rack containers are used for transporting goods with unique dimensions. This is possible because a flat rack container has no sides.
