Flat Rack Containers

Flat rack containers are a useful alternative to standard containers, as these muscular steel platforms can be used to containerise heavy, tall, wide, oddly shaped or otherwise unwieldy cargo. At Royal Wolf, our steel flatbracks feature either rigid or foldable ends that can be used to help secure cargo in place and protect it during transit. Other features, such as collapsible walls, can be added to your flatbrack to maximise their effectiveness. Our experts can help you choose and install the accessories needed to transport the kind of cargo you deal with on a daily basis. Many of these accessories can be collapsed or removed, allowing a single flat rack to handle a variety of types of cargo.

One of the best aspects of flat racks containers is that they’re a versatile addition to your transport arsenal. You could use the same unit for several different applications, or you can outfit it in such a way that it can carry a number of different pieces of equipment or cargo in a single load. Because of their flexibility, flatracks offer a great deal of value for the budget-conscious.

Currently, our flat rack containers come in 20ft and 40ft varieties, with decks made of steel or wood (though we can provide you with non-standard deck sizes if standard models won’t accommodate your cargo needs). We can also supply chains, winches, straps and leaf or coil spring collapsible posts if needed to help you assist in securing your cargo for health and safety requirements.

When it comes to carrying oversized equipment or other difficult-to-transport cargo, flat racks are an ideal solution. With our customised designs and wide range of accessories and customised designs, Royal Wolf makes it simple for you to load, unload and transport your goods anywhere in New Zealand and beyond.

Delivery Instructions


The side loader truck delivers the container by picking it up from the trucks tray at each end of the unit and lowering it onto the site directly next to the trucks’ tray. This method is ideal for delivery of containers that need to fit into constricted spaces. It is important to consider which way the container should be loaded onto the truck as it can only be unloaded from the right hand (drivers’) side.

  • 6m Side Loader Clearance Requirements:
  • Height – 4.5m (15ft)
  • Width – 6m (20ft)
  • Length – 10m (33ft)
  • 12m Side Loader Clearance Requirements:
  • Height – 4.5m (15ft)
  • Width – 6m (20ft)
  • Length – 16m (53ft)


This delivery method is used when neither a tilt tray or side loader truck can access the site. Crane truck delivery allows for containers to be delivered over obstructions such as fences.
