Special Equipment Container Shipping

GP Logistics can you offer a wide range of services to suit every cargo and budget.

If your cargo is too big to go into standard containers but still able to be container shipped, we are able to offer the full suite of special container equipment that some of the shipping lines offer. As the name implies special equipment allows you to ship oversize or otherwise awkward sized or shaped cargo but still via container ships. There are of course still limitations as to height / width / length and weight and these are made clear at the time of quoting or cargo acceptance.

Container special equipment does nevertheless provide a cost effective alternative to RoRo or conventional freight. Especially useful for over height or overwidth project cargo especially where ‘end loading’ is problematic. This type of equipment works perfectly with standard cranes or overhead gantry cranes.

Call the our team who are experienced in all manner of special equipment shipping on a global basis, we would be pleased to visit, measure up and advise you on the best solution for your shipping problem.

Examples of special equipment are:

  • Opentops – Standard 20’, 40’ and 40’ Hicube container with no roof for overhead loading. Tarpaulin supplied for cargo protection.
  • Flatracks - 20’ and 40’ with collapsible ends.
  • Platforms – 20’ and 40’ no ends.
