Embassy Logistic Terms: HT

Heavy tested (HT) containers are containers built to transport a load that exceeds the standard weight.

Some shipping companies use this abbreviation for Hard Top containers. They are Open Top containers with a lid, especially for loads that do not exceed container height, but which do need to be loaded from the top for handling reasons.

Not all shipping companies have both types at their disposal
