Export Container Loading by Erdvark – CL
EXPORT CONTAINER LOADING.
Erdvark Engineering developed a container loading system due to the bulk and heavy equipment that the company are exporting into Sub Sahara African Countries. It was difficult to get the bulk and heavy equipment into the containers within the time that is allowed to load the container. Open Top containers are more expensive and seldom available.
The Erdvark Engineers had to develop a loading system. This system must be able to load a 29 ton load with small forklifts into a 12 meter container within the time limit that the container shipping companies give you to load.
The Erdvark Engineers developed a special steel pallet that is lifted by 2 special 13 meter long hydraulic single pallet jacks. This system allows Erdvark to pre-pack the pallet to the size of the door and length of the container. When the container arrives the pallet jacks lift the pallet and the forklift pushes the pallet into the container. The 2 pallet jacks are lowered and pulled out of the container. Once the container reaches the destination, chains or cables are attached to the pallet and pulled out of the container where ever you are.
