The right container handling equipment for managing your container transport and storage requirements is key to efficiently and profitably achieve optimal day-to-day operations at your container terminal.
Differentiating 3 commonly used Container Handling Equipment
Container handlers and container lift trucks are terms often used interchangeably to refer to a range of specialised container handling equipment designed for efficient lifting, lowering and stacking of empty to heavily loaded containers. However, the differentiation of container handling equipment is evident in its application:
Empty Container Handler
An empty container handler has limited lifting capacity, and is often referred to as the machinery used in the storage and transfer of empty containers. Most empty container handlers use a hydraulic clamping system or twist-lock spreader attached to a lift tower to lift containers from the side or top.
A reach stacker has a higher lifting capacity and is often used in the transhipment of heavy loaded containers and storage which includes being able to pile containers in rows and at various heights. This machinery always uses a top lifting spreader attached to an arm to efficiently lift, stack, and move containers.
Heavy duty forklift truck
The heavy duty forklift truck is for lifting heavy loads. This is container heavy duty forklift truck is fitted with a wide mast where forks can be mounted to enable the lifting, stacking, and moving of containers.
