What does 'Container Spec' mean?

Container spec refers to a truck's ability to operate in standard shipping containers. What it typically means is that the mast for the truck is, when lowered, beneath the height of the overhead guard (generally below 2,150mm) and that the truck operates a full-free-lift mast, meaning a load can be picked up when in the container without the height-restriction of the container roof being an issue.

Typically, container spec trucks have a triplex, 4,300mm mast fitted.
