Flat track containers are made of steel and floored with soft wood. The walls can either be fixed or collapsible. 20’ and 40’ Flat Track Containers are available in sizes.
Since the container is flat track, proper lashing of cargo is required. So many lashing rings are fixed in the side rails of a flat track container. The Flat Track Containers are available with fork lift pockets also. For easy transportation, gooseneck tunnels at each end are fixed in a 40’ Flat Track Container.
Some of the Flat Track Containers are available with lashing winches with lashing belts. For the purpose of movement of certain special cargo, stanchions are required and some of the Flat Track Container owners provide such stanchions.
