Open Top Shipping Containers is a standard general purpose container with a removable roof. It comes as either a soft top or a hard top container. A soft top container is an open-top with a tarp over it to prevent rain from entering the container. A hard-top container is an open-top container with a standard container top that is removable. The benefit of having an open-top container is that you can load/unload the container from above with a crane or other lifting equipment. Materials and/or goods that otherwise would be hard to load or impossible to load through the end doors will be very easy to load and unload through the container top.The 40ft Open Top Shipping container can be used for special and heavy goods.

Open-top containers do not have the conventional steel corrugated container roof. Instead, they have removable bows and a weatherproof tarpaulin that can be secured with ropes. This significantly simplifies the loading and unloading process which is usually done by crane from above. The door header (above the door) can also be swung round / removed to allow easy access for the cargo.
