What is a container trailer?

A container chassis trailer is a special type of undercarriage or chassis developed specifically to transport containers. A container chassis refers to a skeletal structure that is part of a semi-trailer specifically designed to transport containers. It has a bottom frame, multiple shafts and several locking mechanisms to facilitate locking the container to the chassis.
