- What are the dimensions and capacity of a 20′ container?

-External: 20′ long x 8′ wide x 8′ and 6′ high.
-Internal: 19′ and 4” long x 7′ and 9” wide x 7′ and 10” high.

- How many pallets can fit in a 20′ container?
A total of 10 Euro pallets can be stored in a 20′ container, and 20 Euro pallets for a 40′ container.
- Difference between 20′ and 20′ EOD.
The difference between a 20′ and 20′ EOD (Easy Open Door) container is its door opening and closing system.
A 20′ container has 4 locking bars – 2 per door leaf – to make the doors hermetically sealed, whereas a 20’EOD container has 2 bolts on one leaf and 1 bolt on the other leaf.
The tightness of the container is ensured with both systems and both containers are CSC certified.
The EOD “easy open door” system is often used in containers for private use. Its easy opening and closing system is convenient when the container are used on a regular basis.
- The difference between 2F and 4F containers.
The difference between a 2F container and a 4F container is the number of entrances or slots available for moving the load using forklift trucks.
There is the option of manufacturing a 20′ container with 2 forklift pockets or with 4. The 4-stride construction is very useful for handling containers with smaller forklift trucks, provided that the container is being handled empty.
