20ft Ammunition Container

This 20ft Ammunition Container is based on the 20ft Full Access Open Side Container and designed for Ammunition storage.

New 20' Full side access OS/FSA SOC (for freight)


Product description

Container has double doors in one end and one long (6m) wall with fully openable doors. The climate control keeps the temperature solid for safe storage. The front end wall is equipped with a climate control unit: and climate control is based on circular airflow. The floor is without grooves, making sure the cargo doesn’t obstruct the air from flowing over the base (e.g. with pallets) and back under the ceiling (leave some space under the ceiling)

The insulating panels on the sidewall, ceiling, and doors are 60mm PIR panels with aluminum on one side and stainless steel covers on the other side with a heat conductivity of 0.34 W/m2K. The insulation underneath the wooden floor is 120mm mineral wool with a heat conductivity of 0.33 W/m2K covered with a steel plate underneath.

Reefer seals are used to prevent heat leakages in the door assemblies. Locations of the electric distribution box and a sealed box for straps (and earth kid) could be changed upon request. Electric cables (insulated) from LED to the distribution box are placed in between the PIR panels and the roof panels.

This unit is built according to all relevant container ISO standards and to fulfill the operations climate requirements. The container is designed to be used in NATO operations and can be modified for every use as per your requirements

  • What does "handling fee" mean?

    Every time a container, whether it is a container for lease or sale, is moved around a depot, it requires a lift. The handling fee is a one-time cost that covers moving the container around in the depot areas. The fee is only applicable when you lease a container or have a one-way deal with us. We never charge you a handling fee when you buy a container outright, so there are no hidden costs.

  • What do the different container delivery options mean?

    It does not matter if you buy or lease a container; MC Containers can deliver it to you. We use a variety of container delivery methods, including the following container trucking methods:

    • Chassis / CPT (Carriage Paid To)
    • On ground / DAP (Delivered At Place)
    • FOT DEPOT / FCA (Free Carrier)

    Chassis delivery means that your new, used or modified container will be delivered to the destination on a container chassis. However, this service does not include removing it from the chassis. If you decide to buy a container, it is your responsibility to organize a crane or another piece of machinery to offload it. This is the most common container delivery method in Europe due to the better availability of trucks and cost effective rates.

    On Ground Deliveries are done with a truck that can drop the container to the ground with it’s own equipment. Normally, the container delivery is done using a side loader or a truck equipped with a crane. The standard delivery price includes 30-45 min of unloading time per container and any extra time is billed at an hourly rate. If you don’t have a crane available or cannot organize one then this is the best and only option for you.

    FOT DEPOT means Free on Truck in depot. With this container delivery method, the buyer is responsible for organizing a pickup from the chosen container depot. The seller will organize a lift to the chassis in the container depot, so you will not need a crane or side loader for the pickup.

  • Financial Lease

    Would you like to buy a container, but the price is just too much for your budget to pay in one payment? No worries, together with our partner we offer a flexible financial container lease service. We offer our clients the possibility of buying containers through a financial lease plan. This enables fast delivery with little capital investment. This payment type is only possible for clients with a European VAT ID.

    • Fast handling times and delivery of containers
    • Staggered affordable payments


    To order a shipping container through our lease plan service, the minimum order must be at least 500€, and the person leasing must have a European VAT number.

  • How long can a container be used?

    Shipping containers are made of corten steel. This sturdy material enables them to withstand extreme circumstances (wind, water, fire, ice, salt, sun) and any possible rough handling. A shipping container is used from 5-14 years for shipping; after this, they are released and used for other purposes, such as storage containers or modified container units for food and offices.

    Containers that are not used for shipping are perfectly suitable to be used as storage containers. If taken care of, a used shipping container can be used for storage up to 10 years. It is also possible to extend the storage container’s use by regular maintenance, such as, painting, patching holes, changing seals, fixing the floor and taking care of or changing twist locks.

    New shipping containers are usually brought to Europe from China. A new container can last anywhere up to 30 years when used as storage as long as it is looked after properly.
