#1 Container Lifting Jacks
Container lifting jacks, also known as container hoists, are sturdy hydraulic or mechanical devices used to transfer ISO containers between the ground and truck trailers. They are portable machines that come in various sizes and lift capacities, depending on the size and weight of the containers they are designed to lift. Some hoists have automatic self leveling and advanced safety features built in.
To transfer a container from the ground up onto a trailer, the hoists are attached to the ISO corners of the container. The hoist is then activated, lifting the container high enough for the trailer to reverse under, so the container can be lowered onto the trailer. That process is reversed to offload containers from trailers back to the ground or onto container skates.
