AKN Container

Cover door, forkliftable Back to overview

Nearly identical to an AKE container, the difference of an AKN is the forkliftable base. 

Due to its base, this type is often preferred by shippers - just of its sheer easier handling characteristics when using a forklift truck. 

The AKN is a half-sized lower deck container and has been manufactured in various configurations. Typically more focused on enhanced rigidity and security, when compared to the bulk of standard AKE containers. 


Soft doors, solid doors, forkliftable bases, GOH for transport of textiles, interior racking and shelving for transport of e.g. aircraft spares; all - and more - is possible.
