High Cube Containers

ISG is the global market leader in the design and manufacture of high-cube open-top containers (rotainers) for a wide range of low density dry bulk cargo, such as grains, urea, sulphur, biomass, and many other dry materials.

This high cube open top container has been designed, manufactured, and tested for operation with Rotating Spreaders (Tipplers) and is suitable to be rotated 360 degrees to discharge the cargo.

The High Cube Container still comes with high storage space and all of ISG’s unique feature’s such as our Patented Hard lid and Special Flow Gussets on the corner castings. This general purpose container is Certified for BK2 requirements of the International Maritime Organization (IMO), Dangerous Goods Code.  (IMDG Code 2018 Edition PDF)

High Load Rates 

The high cube container allows ports and warehouses to load and discharge low-density cargo at efficient loading rates.

The high internal volume of the container means that when used with a Rotating spreader, the loading rate can be very efficient, and competitive when compared to existing silos, stockpiles, ship loaders or side loaders



Intermodal Portable Storage and Loading

The high cube shipping container can be used on road, rail, and sea, without double handling the cargo. The container would be integrated into existing logistic chains that previously required waggons or trucks to be unloaded and the cargo transferred to silos or warehouses for storage.  

The container replaces the silos and warehouses and keeps the cargo safe from moisture. In the case of wood chips and wood pellets, the container also reduces the risk of explosions by splitting the cargo into smaller individual parcels.  

Roof hatches can be included in the container lid, allowing the container to remain on rail wagons and be loaded via existing overhead loadout facilities.


Case Study: Bolivia – Urea – The Logistics and Loading

Explore the remarkable voyage of moving urea 900 km from the Bolivian jungle to Quijarro near the Brazil-Bolivia border. Our game-changing ISG containers, specially designed for urea transport, make it possible. Unloading in Quijarro employs reach stackers and tipplers.

The containers pour their contents into bulk bags, serving local farming via river distribution. Each convoy includes 50 ISG containers, a testament to our 500-container fleet.
