What is an OOG Shipping Container?

OOG is an acronym for ‘Out of Gague’ – a terminology used to describe a cargo what won’t fit within the ISO dimensions of a shipping container, or cargo that extends beyond these dimensions.

Any load that extends beyond the standard dimensions for the type of container carrying it will be classed as ‘Out of Gauge’, so this would include all open tops with cargo sticking up above the roof line, all platforms and flat racks with cargo that sticks out beyond the sides, roof line or ends on the container.
