World record for super heavy container

“We did it,” says Markku Yli-Kahri, Product Manager of Langh Cargo Solutions, proudly.

Langh Cargo Solutions’ super heavy 40’ steel coil container is now classified for a payload of 100,000 kg.

“It was an experience to witness the container being loaded with a test load of over 180 tonnes, and I must admit that when the container was lifted up, I was excited. And the result was clean,” recounts Yli-Kahri.

The new classification enables a very efficient transportation chain, in which large steel coils can be loaded into the container at the steel mill, transported on a heavy truck to the harbour, and the whole 100,000 kg load can be lifted onboard the vessel in one go.

The 40’ world-record-breaking super heavy steel coil carrier will be present at the Intermodal Europe 2012 exhibition in Amsterdam (27–29 Nov. 2012).
