What is a High Cube?

A High Cube is a type of shipping container that is taller than a standard shipping container. High Cube containers are typically 9’6″ (2.9m) tall, compared to the standard height of 8’6″ (2.6m) for standard shipping containers. 


High Cube containers are used to transport oversized or bulky cargo that may not fit into a standard container. They are also commonly used in the storage and transportation of goods that require extra height, such as vehicles, machinery, or furniture.
