Why choose a container side loader when moving containers?

| 2020-05-06

Fork lifts and Sky Traks are cumbersome and  take extra manpower to operate. They sometimes require extended wait-times, and the whole operation can shift your cargo about from side to side. Same with a crane, or a high-lift with a chain. These methods have been proven, time and again to be dangerous with injuries and damages due to accidents.Besides providing safety and security for your cargo, our low profile sliding side-loader saves you time and money.This outdated technology is no longer necessary when you have Titan Sidelifters transport your shipping containers.Through the use of patented technology your container stays horizontal and secure at all times.Safe,Secure,Container Transport.

Easy and safe way to deliver your 40’ container (however, we can still accommodate 20’ containers).Titan side loader is a semi-trailer which uses a swing lift at either end of the trailer, or tray to pick up, using the containers strong robust corner casts to offload.Side loaders are particularly useful where there is limited space either in front of or behind the truck.Containers can be transported anywhere,anytime by road,this 'self contained' side loader trailer is able to operate without the support of other equipment at load and unload points, enabling containers to be transported easily by road.

This is how container side loader work

1.The driver will conduct a site inspection to make sure there is adequate space for him to safely unload the container.

2.A side loader drives into position and then offloads to the driver’s side of the truck, the container once grounded will sit approximately 500mm from and parallel to the trailer.

Operators have the ability to transfer fully loaded containers, without the need to wait for other lifting type machinery to arrive or become available.This eliminates the cost associated with leaving trailers on site and increases the opportunities for the number of pick-ups and drop-offs in each cycle. It can also free up staff and equipment for other tasks, thus increasing efficiency and reducing operational costs.Another great advantage to transport operators is the capacity to deliver loaded containers to the importer/customer on the ground for them to unpack in their own time, leaving the transport operator free to attend to the next job. In some developing countries, trucks often operate in convoy due to traffic congestion,which means that compact and adaptable Sidelifters have become very useful loading tools – wherever this function may be required. Trucking fleet operators and logistics companies world-wide are now realising the practical and economic advantages of this capability and are adding Sidelifters to their fleets.


The trailer driver can unload the container in minutes on his own, moving 20ft and 40ft containers using the same piece of sidelifters. There is no need for additional equipment or personnel, so saving on additional costs.Containers can be safely transferred to the ground in just minutes, increasing efficiencies and productivity.



Differentiated cargo can be loaded and unloaded without disruption to the client's business. The side loader action allows containers to be safely placed exactly where the client requires it, for ease of access to load and unload as required.Sidelifter is tough, reliable and requires limited maintenance. It also handles container movements on any terrain including low cost dry terminal.Safely handles hazardous, fragile and valuable cargo.The field of application of this type of cargo handling system is wide, as wide as the use of the container for transporting goods.Because it does not require a lot of expensive infrastructures, just enough space to load or unload the wagons.The self-loading and unloading capacity of a container eliminates the need for forklifts and other heavy equipment available at both ends of the container route.


Sidelifter trailers handle containers in areas where space is limited. The container side loader quickly and safely stacks 20ft and 40ft fully loaded, hazardous and fragile containers on top of each other.Side loader can be productive all day,loading,transporting and unloading containers then moving onto the next job. There is just one piece of equipment to manage and maintain, reducing your operating costs.Sidelifter trailers can transport more than just containers. They can handle up to 45 tonnes of cargo,industrial equipment, special vehicles and specialised containers e.g. fuel, portable buildings etc.

The loading and unloading of containers can take place on the ground, reducing the risk of injury.The waiting time is eliminated so that other lift-type machines are available, as well as the need for expensive land preparation.This not only saves money for the transport operator; It also saves time for importers, manufacturers, and distributors.When transporting a sidelifter by road, operators can easily load containers into trailers without the help of cranes.

This means that, in addition to transporting their own containers,Sidelifter can load and unload entire container convoys without the need to relocate independent heavy equipment.
