The PORT 2 YARD Shipping Container Trailer
The Port 2 Yard Shipping Container Trailer is designed as a lightweight, efficient, trailer. Weighing in at under 6,000lbs with a GVWR of 21,000lbs, this lightweight trailer is designed to carry 1 – 40′ Shipping Container, 1 – 45′ Shipping Container (with 5′ add-on extension), 1 – 20′ Shipping Container, or 2 – 20′ Shipping Containers.
The Port 2 Yard Shipping Container Trailer has a perfectly balanced Tri-Axle design that keeps tongue weight within the requirements of most truck manufacturers’ recommendations while keeping your load secure and balanced behind you. It boasts a total of 8 twist locks with 6 of them being retractable eliminating the need to strap down your load, getting you in and out of Depots and Ports quickly.
No straps to unlatch and stow, no need to shim the container for unload.
When you get to your Yard the Port 2 Yard‘s load design allows you to pick Shipping Containers off with a standard forklift.
A Green Convertible Solution:
Not only can you use the Port 2 Yard to move shipping containers, you can also use our 20′ Flat Decks that are manufactured by re-purposing shipping container bottoms. Our unique re-purposing method allows you to convert the Port 2 Yard to a 20′ or a 41′ flat deck trailer. This convertible solution eliminates the need to purchase multiple trailer types with a low cost entry point.
