Flat Rack & Open Top Shipping Containers

DLS has wide-ranging experience handling extremely heavy and wide cargo, and we can provide flat rack or open top shipping containers for your important cargo. Flat rack and Open top are two types of cargo transporting methods that are often used with cargo that is too tall or bulky to fit in standard shipping containers. Flat racks normally either have fixed or folding ends, and cargo is loaded from the sides or tops. Open tops have closed sides and allow cargo to be loaded from the top, cargo is the covered with a tarp.

Whether you need to transport an airplane fuselage, wind turbines, industrial compressors or any other large industrial equipment, DLS can handle the move. We are experts in moving heavy equipment and irregularly-shaped, including out-of-gauge cargo that doesn’t fit in a standard shipping container.
