High Cube Containers

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

Our open-top high cube containers have been designed, manufactured, and tested for operation with rotating spreaders (tipplers) and are suitable to be rotated 360 degrees to discharge the cargo.

The high cube container comes with high storage space and all of ISG’s unique features 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 Organisation (IMO) and the International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code.

High Load Rates 

High cube containers allow ports and warehouses to load and discharge low-density cargo at efficient loading rates.

Their increased internal volume 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

High cube containers 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 wagons or trucks to be unloaded and the cargo transferred to silos or warehouses for storage.

These containers also replace the silos and warehouses and keep your cargo safe from moisture. In the case of wood chips and 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 high cube containers 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 high cube 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 contained 50 ISG containers, a testament to our 500-container fleet.
