What is a Side Opening Shipping Container?

A Side opening shipping container is simply a shipping container that features full bi-fold side doors, with double container doors in the rear end wall. These are the perfect storage solution for anyone requiring full access from the side – or with odd shaped parts requiring a weatherproof and safe storage.

Shipping containers were originally created to transport goods and cargo by land and sea. They are heavy duty, weather resistant and extremely resilient. But as general purpose shipping containers have become more popular among the general public, the shipping industry have started modifying containers to make it easier to access your items. One of these modifications was the addition of side doors to make it easier for loading, unloading and accessing your items. The side opening shipping containers are very versatile and make it easy to get quick access to your items or to load them more quickly and easily.
