Background: There are many construction types of racks used for transport of passenger cars in standardized containers for sea and land transport. The producers of such solutions offer at present containers, which enable the transport of up to five passenger cars in one container but not always the loading space of the container is used in optimal way. Therefore researches are undertaken aiming to find solutions enabling even better use of free loading space of containers as well as to improve already existing solutions. 

Methods: The analysis of already existing and used solutions of methods of fastening and transport of passenger cars in containers was conducted based on literature review.

Results: Based on obtained results, the desirable directions of further developing researches of innovative transport concepts were elaborated. They included two main requirements: utility for sea and land transport and in some conditions also for air transport, and the second postulate consisting in the possibility of the integration of specialized racks of changeable dimensions with the given container and their operational adaptation to the loading space of specific types of containers.

Conclusions: The concept of container system for sea transport of passenger cars was proposed. This idea is based on 40’ container with ability to enlarge to the dimensions of 53’ container and simultaneously to increase the number of transported passenger cars from four to five or even six ones in one container. 

Keywords: container transport, transport of passenger cars, module construction of container, car racks
