If you are thinking of using container side loader trailer delivery for your business, there are some points to take into consideration. This mainly involves making sure your site is appropriate to accommodate this type of truck. As flexible as the use of a container side loader trailer is, please pay attention to  something:

1.Make sure you have at least 4.2 meters height for travel under trees, power lines, factory/house eves, and doorways. As well, the lifting arms will need about 6.5 meters during unloading, so be sure you allow for this much space above where the unloading will take place.

2.The land underneath where the container side loader trailer is unloading will need to be relatively level and sealed or compacted. If the site is sloped, the container side loader may still be able to unload by parking across from the slope.


3.The cargo container is offloaded from the truck onto the ground via the vehicle’s drivers’ side parallel to the side of the truck and about half a meter away. There will need to be at least three to four meters of clear space in front of the container side loader for it to leave after unloading.

4.Although most cargo containers are 2.44 meters wide, there needs to be an opening of at least 2.9 meters wide to fully accommodate the truck.

Container side loaders are specialized lift trucks designed for areas that are extremely tight or where loads are longer than normal and need to be transported in a sideways direction. It is ideally suited for indoor and outdoor use, able to withstand the elements and endure heavy use year after year.
