The right feeling for the right vessels
Flat Rack – open to many sides
They are of an open and thus inviting nature. Flat Racks are containers with two front walls but without side walls and roof. They are an interesting solution for every transport good exceeding the standard size of the ISO containers.
The 1&1 Transportation Inc. also provides these special containers for industrial customers who must transport goods with an oversize width, height and/or weight – e.g. machines and plants. Flat Racks are a cost-efficient and product-specific option within international supply chains. Also because the loading and unloading of the open racks can be done easier and therefore quicker than in the case of standard containers.
Flexitanks – adaptable and convertible
Flexitanks are plastic containers for standard 20-foot containers. They can be used for many industrial products outside of the dangerous goods classes – e.g. certain liquid chemicals but also victuals like drinks or edible oils.
High Cube Container – high up for low costs
When goods are huge but not necessarily heavy: High Cube Containers are perfectly suitable specifically for the transport of piece good which is light and at the same time very voluminous. Or also for goods with an oversize height of up to 2.70 metres. They are one foot (some 30 centimetres) higher than standard containers and allow an accordingly easy loading through the 2.59 metre high doors.
The 1&1 Transportation Inc. can also provide consigners from industry and trade with these space-saving wonders . As they provide more storage space on the same area, High Cube Containers can lead to significant cost benefits for certain groups of goods.
Open Top Container – Upward open capacities
Do you want it a little higher? Open Top Containers have no fixed roof but instead a detachable tarpaulin and they are specifically designed for very heavy loads like machine tools or energy plants. Depending on its proportions the transported product can be loaded and unloaded either from above or – in case of a door header swivelled out – from the door side. Loading and unloading is done via a crane, otherwise the handling of Open Top Containers is just like that of normal closed versions. The transported product is secured towards the top with a tarpaulin and protected from the container walls.
Open Top Containers thus constitute a cheap alternative for machines and facilities with an oversize height. For these don’t have to be dismantled – or at least to a considerable less degree. This saves time and costs and minimizes transportation and assembly risks.
Reefer Container – a cool solution for well-tempered transports
When freshness is needed: For industry and trade temperature-controlled transports, especially transcontinental ones, are an indispensible element of their logistic chains. Food, confectionery, drinks, but also pharmaceuticals require specific means of transportation: product-specific and cost-efficient. The 1&1 Transportation Inc. covers a wide range of different refrigerated containers that protect perishables at arctic temperatures or up to warm 20 degrees Celsius – even when outside the temperatures are just the opposite.
