    Not a too bad idea. I was heading for another place though...

      Re: Random Pictures of Cars, Buses, Trucks...

      i had to load this week southeast of the rhur aeria,when i arrive and ask what to load there, pallets or loose cartons?
      he said,2 trucks, iveco.

      uhh,in a 40 ft container.

      2 of these,door to door selling deep freeze products trucks. (ore whatever they are called in english)





      the wooden frame on the floor is the inside of the container,so they know exactly how far from each other and from the walls they placed them in the container.



      and they had removed the bumper and hang up the hood on the container roof,it fits exactly.so cloose the doors and on there way to Kazachstan.
      wel i just go to Duisburg,the container goes there on the train to Kazachstan.
      traveltime,about 4 weeks
      best regards Thijs

        You missed your chance of a buckshee holiday in Kazachstan.
        Nifty bit of work there, to get the vans to fit in the container.

          It's amazing what is carried inside trucks these days.... I wish trucks all came with glass walls, so we could see....

            Funny that they decided to take the truck apart instead of getting a longer container.

              Containers are standard length 20' & 40') The 45' Containers are a US thing.

                yes and this was a 40ft container,and that fits precise
                2 x 20ft and 1 of 40ft are on the outside the same lenght ,but inside is 1 40ft longer,1 end and 1 frontside are away,so you got some centimeters or inches more.
                so maybe he got in troubble with the lenght of the cars,but this was cheaper aswel and quicker.
                he said if the total of 20ft containers is oneven,they wait with the container until there was 1 extra,so the trainwagon would be full.
                what is odd,because there are wagons where fits 2 x20ft or 1 40ft container,but there are also wagons that can handle a 20ft AND a 40 ft container.
                wel in Europe it is,Asia i don't know,but i think it's the same there.

                about the 45ft i can't agree with you on that Ombugge,we have them here also and mostly in use for the shortsea shipping,
                Northsea -Mediterranean Sea-scandanavian seas or in short, the whole european coastline.

                and then we have the palletwide containers.
                they shoot the driver when you have loaded a pw container for the US,if they don't shoot you ,you can go back to the loadingadres unload the container,go back to the port,drop of,pick up another one and load it again.all for the costs of the trucking company.

                anf than there is the 40ft high cube container,about 30 cm higher than the standart container,
                and you don't seen them much,but there are now also 20ft high cube HC container,and very rare, a palletwide 20ft

                and there is also a 53 ft container never seen them here,so maybe that is the US thing.

                  Re: Random Pictures of Cars, Buses, Trucks...

                  Yes I know that there are some 45 ft. containers with extra width in use, mainly to suite the standard Europallet, which is 1200×800×144 mm, but such containers are difficult to fit in fully cellular Container ships, unless they have cells specifically for that type.

                  The 53 ft. container with extra width I have never seen. How do you fit such a thing on a standard Container trailer with 40 ft. bed??
                  I see that both for 45 ft. and 53 ft. containers there are corner fitting at 40 ft. spacing. Does that mean that the rest is over hanging at one (or both) end???

                    Re: Random Pictures of Cars, Buses, Trucks...

                    i don't think ist diffecult Ombugge.
                    we're talking just over some centimeters,and the standard container is the widest point the cornercastings,the wall are smaller that those castings.
                    the pw containers are just a little wider so they will fit beside eachother,but i also think that the cells at the vessels are some wider as a container is.
                    because they have always dents in or/and outside also on the posts,so there will be space.
                    and because we see them on the shortsea vessels a lot,those vessels wil be special made for it.

                    the longer containers always have those 40ft corner castings,the containerspreaders on the cranes/forklifts don't go further than 40,it's the standard.
                    the containerchassis of these days are multiple choice.
                    1 20ft locked or scrolling
                    1 30ft
                    2x20ft
                    1 40ft
                    1 45ft
                    1 swap container

                    the standard teu is 6 meters is 20ft as you will know a vessel is built for that much of teu,the same amount of 40ft would never fit.
                    so the ''Emma maersk'' is capeble for 18.000 teu,in 40 ft she can take 9.000 containers.

                    the most types of containers are 20 and 40ft,so every spreader can take those 2 sizes +a 30ft,because thats in between.
                    Quay cranes that un/load vessels can take 2 20ft containers lift in ones. (if they are not to heavy)

                    to come at your quistion,a trailer is 40 ft long we can make that longer by making the chassis longer by shifting the head out,making the wheelbase longer,and/or shift the backend out.
                    with my chassis i can only strech it out in the middel,making the wheelbase longer,and i get a overlenght.
                    what is a kind of forbidden,because of the danger when a car drive into my backend,so there have to be a pullout bumper.





                    the 2 top image's with the gap is what i can make it longer,the same lenght will be over at the backside.
                    the last image is how i drive at the normal way.

                    for now i havn't found a image of it,but the latest chassis are more standard built for the 45ft containers.
                    a shifting head and a wheelbase that stays the same aswel for the backend also for pullout for the containerpost,so not only the bumper,but the whole backend can be pullout,by airpressure or from running via tooth wheel

                      The standard cells are for 40 ft. containers, or 2 x 20 ft.
                      You may be able to stretch your trailer but the Container ships are not that flexible.

                        oh wait you was refering to the lenght,i understood wide.
                        for the 45 ft containers when they go further away (maersk,evergreen and oocl have them too) they place them above deck.
                        there is space for them,while not every vessel have those glidepoles on deck,or ifso the containers go higher than the poles,
                        so then there is no problem with the lenght,just as with the open top or flatrecks that have overhight,the make place for them.

                            Drove to Molde today, and made a stop at the mineral water factory Oskar Sylte AS to picture of what possibly is one of their first distribution car, an old Ford pick-up
