48 Foot Hi-Cube Containers
Lots of room for inventory, supplies, or equipment. These are former ocean cargo containers, either new or used. Most used containers have been repainted and refurbished to “wind & water tight” specifications. They are constructed of heavy duty steel framing, aluminum siding, and marine grade hardwood flooring supported by steel I-beam cross members every 12″ on center.
These jumbo size units offer an extra foot of height and an extra six inches of width. For storing palletized inventory, these containers allow maximum utilization. For example, a standard pallet is 40″ by 48″ in size. A standard 40 foot container will hold up to 18 pallets placed side by side on the 40 inch side. However, a 48′ x 8.5′ container will hold up to 28 pallets placed side by side on the 48 inch side. That’s more than 50% extra storage capacity for only a 27% larger footprint.
