MakeTheSwitch – Palletised Cargo

A container that can carry the magical number of 33 Euro pallets AND be shipped by road, rail or sea? That’ll be the 45-foot container. There is a common misconception that only trucks have the capacity for 33 Euro pallets but our huge range of 45-foot containers prove that this is just a myth. With equal capacity to a standard truck trailer and the ability to be shipped intermodally on rail and sea too, these containers are the ultimate solution to your shipping needs, allowing your cargo to take the most efficient, environmentally friendly route from door to door. So why not book on one of our vessels and #MakeTheSwitch!

Maximum capacity and intermodal ability

Available in both 40-foot and 45-foot versions, our High Cube Pallet Wide containers are the ultimate solution for shipping by pallet. They are specifically designed to work with 1.2m Euro pallets and can fit two of these end to end down the full length of the container thanks to their 2.45m internal width. This ensures the optimal amount of space so that no space goes to waste.

Main Benefits:

  • 33 Euro pallet capacity, equal to a standard truck trailer
  • Capable of being shipped by road, rail, and sea
  • Reduced environmental impact when used intermodally

The Sustainable Choice

Reducing the carbon footprint of your cargo has never been easier because by choosing to use 45-foot containers instead of trucks, and by including both rail and sea legs into your route, you can reduce CO2 emissions by more than 50%. There’s no compromise when you choose a 45-foot High Cube Pallet Wide container to move your cargo, so the only thing left is to try it for yourself.
