Pallet Wide Containers

Pallet Wide (PW) containers are containers that are specially designed to accommodate a larger amount of Euro pallets. This helps with maximizing space and efficiency. The three types of pallet wide containers, the 20-foot, the 40-foot and high cube, have the same external dimensions as their corresponding standard ISO containers.

But their interior dimensions are different. Pallet wide containers’ interior width measures 2.438m, which is larger than the standard container’s internal width of 2.348m


Pallet Wide Containers: Dimensions

Containers are made according to standard sizes set by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Mostly, pallet wide containers are 20ft tall, but they can also be 40ft standard, or 45ft high cube containers (depending on the requirements). Here are the internal measurements and capacity of these containers:

Measure 20ft PW 40ft PW
Internal length 5.89 m / 19.3 ft 12.03 m / 39.5 ft
Internal width 2.44 m / 8 ft 2.44 m / 8 ft
Internal height 2.39 m / 7.8 ft 2.39 m / 7.8 ft
Tare weight 2,400 kg / 5,291 lbs 3,800 kg / 8,377 lbs
Payload capacity 28,080 kg / 61,906 lbs 29,740 kg / 65,565 lbs
Cubic capacity 34.3 m3 / 1,213 cu ft 79.9 m3 / 2,786 cu ft

Pallet wide containers are great for shipping any type of cargo (just like intermodal containers) but are ideal for transporting euro-pallets and goods like raw material, machinery, tools, etc.
