    No, at BNSF Elwood lots of times I would bring in a private chassis owned by Fore and the box I needed was already mounted on a rail chassis. Therefor I would need a "flip" to get the box off the junkie rail chassis onto my private chassis that I brought in.

    A "lift" is getting a box taken off chassis. A "flip" is having box taken off one chassis and put on another. At least that's how I've always thought. LOL.

    High cube has yellow and black reflective tape in the upper corners, sometimes they have a warning sticker, front and back, to watch out high cube ...and finally, obviously it’s taller than a std....

    HC is 9’6” tall.....STD is 8’6”

    HC are all 40 or 45 .....
     
    4noReason, HalpinUout and ChicagoJohn Thank this.
