Container Chassis – Rental and Lease

Container chassis: A skeletal trailer chassis for the transportation of shipping containers.

This type of purpose-built trailer features an exposed ladder frame chassis to transport shipping containers. The body is easy and quick to secure once the container lowers onto the chassis. It achieves this thanks to twist-lock fittings attached to the framework.

TIP is proud to offer both fixed and multifunctional container chassis. The fixed container chassis, or skeletal trailer, has a standardised fixed trellis chassis. This chassis is capable of carrying large shipping containers.

The adjustability of the multifunctional container chassis offers increased flexibility to road hauliers. These trailers can carry one 45ft or two 20ft containers.
