Open Tops

East Coast Commodities offers open top containers designed for the transportation and storage of tall, heavy or awkward cargo. Open top containers have a removable tarpaulin which includes heavy duty eyelets. The tarpaulin fits over the roof of the open top container and is water and wind resistant. These open top containers make loading bulky goods with a crane easy by loading the open top container from above. We offer 20ft and 40ft open top containers.
We can also offer upon request 20ft hard top container.
