C-Lifts are emerging as a viable container lifting equipment as it gets installed in over 20 countries. The lifts challenge the mid-range container handling market and dominate the container jacking niche.
“Companies are realizing that in many cases, a vertical lifting container system is a superior solution to traditional container handling equipment,” says BISON CEO Greg Fahey. “Previously, the only options were capital-intensive pieces of equipment, or at a pinch, hiring a crane. Given the size and cost of traditional CHE. Buying these big machines can be a little like using a sledgehammer to crack a nut."
Container jacks give organizations the ability to assert more control over their container shipping operations at a fraction of the cost or traditional equipment. However, importers and exporters are now understanding that they can eliminate scheduling frustrations by owning their own container lifting system.
“A coolstore customer of ours was frustrated with the shortage of haulage companies with the capability to also put containers on the ground. By installing their own container hoists on site, they have taken back control of their container logistics and are able to work with a wider range of haulage companies - cutting costs and making it easier to ship on time,” Fahey says.
Container owners are benefiting from the small footprint and portability of C-Lifts. Contractors can now deliver their containerized assets into secure facilities on schedule, without the hassle of coordinating third party crane hire and getting containers on and off trucks around the globe in remote locations.
