Port Containers USA Open Top is used for transporting cargo that due to its size can be loaded only vertically (lowered into the container from the top). The same containers are used for oversized cargo whose height is higher than the standard container.

40′ Open Top Containers are containers built for freight use, with a tarpaulin instead of a steel roof. The cover can be removed during loading, to enable top loading of overly high products.  The Open Top Container has removable support bars under the tarpaulin and a TIR cable for fastening the tarpaulin to the container. All our Open Top Containers are approved for international freight transport (CSC). New and used 20′ Open Top Containers are available with fast delivery.

Container Open Top typically has a removable roof from canvas or another similar material. Less common is Hard Top with a removable hard roof. A characteristic feature of Open Top and Hard Top is a removable top crossbar at the end of the container which is used for the convenience of handling activities.

OUG (OOG) Out Of Gauge – the cargo size exceeds the size of the standard container (protruding out of the container).
