SHIPPING CONTAINER LIFTING

Pre-Covid South Africa saw 3253 seagoing vessels pass through its major seaports. Despite the downturn in imports and exports and far lower port movements, one thing remains: Containers. 

 

Anyone who travels anywhere in South Africa, or Southern Africa for that matter cannot help but notice the vast number of shipping containers. As far inland as the Free State and dotted along the coast from Namibia and around the Mozambique containers litter the landscape. Most of these shipping containers have one thing in common; they need to be moved.

In a nutshell, the Container Jack offers you all this:
– Can handle containers up to 32 tons
– Components are easy to transport on a 1-ton LDV
– Low maintenance
– Easy to handle – heaviest component weighs just 57 kg
– Manually operated

Anyone who travels anywhere in South Africa, or Southern Africa for that matter cannot help but notice the vast number of shipping containers. As far inland as the Free State and dotted along the coast from Namibia and around the Mozambique containers litter the landscape. Most of these shipping containers have one thing in common; they need to be moved.

Not only is there a puzzle as to how the heavy shipping container was lifted from a truck but very often the same shipping container will, at some point, need lifting back onto a truck. There isn’t a crane or tractor with lifting equipment in sight, there is no forklift capable of lifting what will be upwards of 10 metric tonnes. Suddenly the smooth operation of container shipment is not working and there is either a truck with a container stuck unable to unload or a container sat that cannot be loaded. 

The answer to the conundrum has been solved using a simple piece of very strong equipment: Container Jack.
