History: Cargo comes in all shapes and sizes and cannot always be squeezed into a standard container. Hence, many inter-modal carriers have fleets of special containers that provide out-of-gauge and projects options for the most unique shipments. One unique container type is the Flat Rack. They have no sides, and their ends are collapsible.

These containers are popular with manufacturing companies such as steel, trucking, construction, sugar, mining, oil and gas. Cargo is secured to the base of the container by using web slings, lashing belts, wooden stoppers and bracing. Thus, typical cargoes include: pipes & tubes, break bulk cargoes, transformers, boilers, LPG tanks, earth moving equipment, construction equipment, cranes, sugar plants, coal plants, oil field equipment, hydro projects elements, and wind turbine components.

Railroad/Company: This set of items is comprised of more than one name. Please look at the component items for details on the specific roadnames and/or manufacturers.
