The functionality of the Open Side containers is very useful to store cargo, in any place, for temporary or permanent storage. The quality of the container is high and it provides enough space to preserve the cargo in a safe and secure way. They are steady and clean, making them capable for any general cargo use. The side of the container is open and this option allows the loading of the cargo from the sides of the van, especially in places where the top might have limited space to open and there is a necessity for another way of managing the cargo.


The Open Side containers are also a great choice for quality transportation by ship, train, airplane or truck. The container will be constructed to be suitable for transportation in the following modes:

a) Marine: In the ship cell guides of vessels, nine (9) high stacked. On the deck of vessels, four (4) high 
stacked and secured by vertical and diagonal wire lashings.
b) Road: On flat bed or skeletal chassis, secured by twistlocks or equivalent at the bottom corner fittings.
c) Rail: On flat cars or special container cars secured by twistlocks or equivalent at the bottom corner fittings.

All the containers of Mouzaliotis Containers are tested and certified with measurements and high quality standards, from our expert personnel.
