Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9806630A2] A container (10) for use in the transportation of goods includes a floor (12) and a pair of opposed side walls (14, 16) each of which is supported for displacement about a pivotal axis adjacent its upper edge. The container (10) also includes hinge means (26) whereby one side wall (14) is disconnectably connectable adjacent its lower edge to the floor (12). The container (10) further includes first displacement means (52) for displacing the floor (12) laterally between a rest position in which goods can be contained within the container (10), and a displaced position. When the side wall (14) is connected to the floor (12) by the hinge means (26) then the side wall (14) is displaced together with the floor (12). However, the floor (12) is displaced independently of the side wall (14) when the hinge means (26) is disconnected.
