Container loads of freight can be delivered direct to customers

Container loads of freight can be delivered direct to customers, eliminating the need for costly and time-consuming transfer of freight from containers into semi trailers. Furthermore with Swing Thru's ability to unload and pick up containers off the ground loading and unloading cargo is much faster, safer and simpler. Warehouse and distribution centre construction costs are also slashed as high level docking bays can be dispensed with in favour of simpler cheaper ground level doors. In some cases distribution centres may even be able to be dispensed with all together providing even greater cost savings for transport companies and their customers.
 
 

Swing Thru is Revolutionising the Handling of Containers

Container Handling System

Now with the Swing Thru system you use the same piece of equipment to load, transport and unload containers, maximising efficiency. The Swing Thru system lifts up to 35 tonnes and is operated by the truck driver, without the need for a forklift, crane or specialist operator.   
At locations where empty containers are dropped off and full containers are retrieved regularly this operation can be carried out without having to reposition the truck through dropping off on one side and retrieving from the other. Container transfers to trailers and other vehicles can be achieved without having to relocate the truck.

More Flexibility, Safety and Efficiency

Container Handling System

When delivering containers to a customer the double-sided Swing Thru gives greater flexibility within the customers premises - positioning containers where the customer wants them as opposed to where the machine can drop them. This builds customer loyalty. 
The double-sided Swing Thru reduces manoeuvring in customers yards, reducing disruption, increasing safety and profitability. There is no need to have prior knowledge of the customers premises or the direction of the container doors. To rotate the container simply turn the truck around and drop the container off on the opposite side. 
Swing Thru places the containers directly on to the ground without the need to leave trailers or trucks at the customers premises, freeing those vehicles up to continue work elsewhere. Health and safety risks are greatly reduced when containers are loaded or unloaded on the ground.
 
 

Increase Container Movements

 Increase Productivity

With a truck/trailer combination two containers can be loaded or unloaded at a customer's premises using one operator in approximately 10 minutes. In one example a single operator was able to handle 368 containers in one month, compared with 288 using older technology. This translates to over 1000 extra container movements per annum. This represents a 28% increase in productivity! Designed for maximum flexibility, while still maintaining its efficiency, ease of operation and safety, the award winning Swing Thru system has truly revolutionised containerised freight handling. If you haven't considered the Swing Thru system for your business, you could be missing out on improved productivity through reducing your freight handling time and costs.
