LOADING, UNLOADING AND RELOCATING SHIPPING CONTAINERS. It is much more economical to move Shipping Containers with standard flatbed trucks, but loading and unloading them, until now, required special equipment. Stokes Industries Co. LTD has designed and PATENTED a device to make this easy.
A Hydraulically Operated Container Lift, which can be carried on a flatbed trailer, can be easily attached to the four corners of any container by one single person. The container can be lifted from the trailer and placed on the ground or raised from the ground and put on the trailer driven beneath it. The hydraulic system uses level detectors to maintain the container in a level configuration when raising or lowering it from the trailer.
