With our sidelift method of ISO sea shipping container moving, we avoid the traditional method of sliding a connex container off the end of a trailer and then dropping the shipping container on the ground. With Sidelifter, there will be little opportunity for damage to the contents of your ISO container, since your container is not being tilted or dropped during pick-up, transport, and delivery.

Sidelifter will pick up your loaded or empty ISO container, transport it on our air-ride tractor and trailer to where you want it to go, then set it down exactly where you want it set down, all without tilting or dropping your container, and with minimal shifting of the contents.

ISO / shipping containers can be transferred from this trailer to a rail freight carriage / unit. This vehicle is extremely useful for the loading and unloading of ISO containers on site, especially in avoiding costly crane hire charges for loading & unloading operations.A 40ft ISO flat-rack shipping container base can be utilised with this trailer as a flatbed vehicle.The flat-rack container base can be unloaded and lowered to the floor, loaded with whatever items, products or equipment that requires movement, secured for transit and then simply lifted and reloaded on to the trailer in readiness for onward delivery to another site.At the delivery site the same process takes place for unloading purposes and this avoids working at height issues, whilst loading and unloading takes place.
