Shipping Containers for the Haulage Industry

photo 5Shipping containers are extremely popular with many hauliers with large yards as they help keep various items safe, dry and secure. In the case of Emms transport they wanted some 30ft stackable containers for their yard which has side doors fitted for storage.

Emms Transport & Training are based in South Yorkshire and specialise in road transport, haulage and logistic solutions across the UK and EU. They needed a specific length shipping container with additional side access for their yard in Doncaster. One of our 30ft refurbished containers fitted the bill perfectly for Emms because of where it was going in their yard and the fact they wanted their existing 20ft to be stacked on top of it.

Additional side access was also essential because of the restricted access of the end doors. On this occasion Emms opted for an extra set of cargo doors to allow 8ft of unobstructed access for their larger goods.  

Happy with the finished result Company Director, Wesley Emms, placed an order for two more 30ft refurbished shipping containers to replace two older used units which had clearly been on site a while. These are being used for spares parts and a tyre store. Again repainted company colours these units were stacked on top of each other.

The yard looks a lot smarter with their older blue containers gone now they have been replaced by our very smart red 30ft containers.

“Both containers were lifted in without a hitch, it was a little hairy with the wind and it being so close to our workshops however they are now sited and look great. The staircase will be going back on soon!” – Wesley Emms, Director of Emms Transport.

Fortunately our drivers are all experienced mobile crane / hiab operators and they can often get a shipping container into places you’d barely believe possible. If you have a difficult delivery you need doing – please advise us in advance so we can be sure we have the best truck and driver on your delivery if needed.
