Ore Carrying Half Height

Cargostore’s Ore Carrying Half Heights are BK2 certified for heavy bulk loads not requiring large cubic capacity.

Ideal for diverse, dense cargo types transported by the mining and mineral by-product industries.

BK2 is an IMDG (International Maritime Dangerous Goods) code that redefines Bulk Containers. It differs from standard ISO in two main areas:

• End wall strength is greater, with test load of 0.6 payload, compared to 0.4 for a standard ISO container.

• Loose bulk must be contained without leakage.
