Pallet Wide (PW) containers are containers that are specially designed to accommodate a larger amount of Euro pallets. This helps with maximizing space and efficiency. The three types of pallet wide containers, the 20-foot, the 40-foot and high cube, have the same external dimensions as their corresponding standard ISO containers.

But their interior dimensions are different. Pallet wide containers’ interior width measures 2.438m, which is larger than the standard container’s internal width of 2.348m.

20-ft pallet wide container dimensions

  • Exterior Dimensions (in feet): 20’ long x 8’ wide x 8’ 6” tall
  • Exterior Dimensions (in meters): 6.10m long x 2.44m wide x 2.59m high

Internally, a 20-ft pallet wide container can fit 15 Euro pallets, 4 more than a standard 20-foot container.

40-ft pallet wide container dimentions

  • Exterior Dimensions (in feet): 40’ long x 8’ wide x 8’ 6” tall
  • Exterior Dimensions (in meters): 12.19m long x 2.44m wide x 2.59m high
