Moving your Out of Gauge Cargo
It’s all dandy when the goods fit nicely into a container. However, not all cargo may fit into a standard container. This is why we offer the expertise and equipment to handle out of gauge cargo.

4. Journey to the centre of the earth where the new OTR tyres we carried from Spain will end up
In this case our customer needed to transport 6 OTR (off the road) dumper truck tyres out of Spain to a quarry site in Sweden. Our 40’ open top container was the perfect solution. It measures 40’ x 8’ x 8’6” and has a maximum payload of up to 26.6 metric tonnes. This open top was suitable for the oversized cargo that exceeded the usual height of our regular containers, but still fits within the weight limits. They are equipped with removable roof bows and tarpaulin covers, and the cargo can easily be secured with lashing bars and bull rings.
The 40′ open top container was then loaded on our Ensemble vessel on the Scan Baltic Service with the final delivery to the quarry being made by truck .
