LOADING / UNLOADING POSSIBILITIES — CONTAINERS — SWITZERLAND

Depend­ing on the loca­tion of the con­tain­er, con­tent, weight, space and require­ments on site, dif­fer­ent load­ing and unload­ing meth­ods are used.

That is why we also offer all pos­si­ble unload­ing and load­ing options.

DELIVERY — WITHOUT UNLOADING (= unloading by customer)

With­out an order to unload or load the con­tain­ers, the con­tain­ers are usu­al­ly deliv­ered with a truck chas­sis (with­out the pos­si­bil­i­ty of unload­ing or load­ing). The recip­i­ent or sender of the con­tain­er then loads or unloads the con­tain­er direct­ly on the chas­sis or takes over the load­ing or unload­ing from or onto the con­tain­er chas­sis by self-orga­nized means such as a suit­able fork­lift or crane.

It should be not­ed that 10-foot and 20-foot con­tain­ers have fork­lift pock­ets, with 40-foot con­tain­ers this is not always the case.

Advan­tage:
There are no addi­tion­al costs for load­ing or unload­ing if the con­tain­er is loaded or unloaded with­in the spec­i­fied time or loaded or unloaded with your own fork­lift / crane.

Dis­ad­van­tage:
The forklift/stacker must be designed for the weight of the container.
If a sep­a­rate crane has to be ordered, this is often asso­ci­at­ed with high costs.

SCRAPLINER — UNLOADING / RECHARGING

The Scraplin­er first places the con­tain­er on the floor at the back end and then slow­ly moves away.

Due to the incli­na­tion angle of approx. 40 ° to approx. 45 °, the goods must be secure­ly secured in the con­tain­er to pre­vent them from slipping.

Fea­si­ble Con­tain­er: 20′ Con­tain­er (emp­ty or loaded)

Advan­tage: inex­pen­sive load­ing or unload­ing option
Dis­ad­van­tage: larg­er angle of inclination

Require­ment:
— flat, firm surface
— Min. 25m straight route
— Min. 2.5m width

TRUCK WITH TRUCK-CRANE

Fea­si­ble Con­tain­er: 20′ & 40′ / 40′ HC Con­tain­er > though only EMPTY!

Advan­tage:
Cheap­er than with a sep­a­rate crane or side loader

Dis­ad­van­tage: Usu­al­ly only unload­ing and load­ing with an EMPTY con­tain­er pos­si­ble (since own truck crane is not suf­fi­cient for heav­ier loads)

Require­ment:
— Con­tain­er must be emp­ty (20′ max. 2.3t & 40′ max. 4t)
— firm ground and secure stand for truck crane supports
— unload­ing only pos­si­ble next to the truck or with a larg­er crane (more expen­sive) also behind the truck

SIDE LOADER VEHICLE

Fea­si­ble Con­tain­er: 20′ & 40′ / 40′ HC Container

Advantage:

— cheap­er than with a sep­a­rate crane
— can be loaded with an emp­ty or full / loaded container

Dis­ad­van­tage: Unload­ing only pos­si­ble on the driver’s side ( in the direc­tion of trav­el — left side), Con­tain­er doors at the rear of the vehicle

Require­ment:
— Sol­id sur­face and secure stand for con­tain­er sup­ports & truck
— At ground lev­el (with­out incline or descent) and fixed
— Unload­ing only next to the truck — DRIVER’S SIDE possible
— Suf­fi­cient maneu­ver­ing space for 40-tonne semitrailer
— Access to the con­tain­er is unhindered
— Length of the straight route = min . 20m — 25m
— Width of the entire route = min. 6 m
— height = min. 6 m

SEPARATE CRANE (organized by us or yourself)

Depend­ing on the require­ments (e.g. unload­ing or load­ing of con­tain­ers not direct­ly next to the truck), we can also send a sep­a­rate crane to the load­ing point or you can hire a crane com­pa­ny in your area to unload or load the con­tain­er onto the truck.

Fea­si­ble Con­tain­er: 20′ & 40′ / 40′ HC Container

Advan­tage:
more flex­i­ble > longer distances

Dis­ad­van­tage: Usu­al­ly asso­ci­at­ed with high costs

Require­ment:
— firm, load-bear­ing, lev­el sub­sur­face and safe stand for crane and vehicle
— suf­fi­cient maneu­ver­ing space for 40-tonne semi­trail­er & sep­a­rate crane
— Access to the con­tain­er is unhindered

HELICOPTER TRANSPORT

In loca­tions that are dif­fi­cult to access, it may be nec­es­sary to use a heli­copter. We would also be hap­py to orga­nize trans­porta­tion by heli­copter for you

Fea­si­ble Con­tain­er: 20′ & pos­si­bly 40′ Container

Advan­tage:
loca­tions that are dif­fi­cult to access can be reached

Dis­ad­van­tage: high costs

Require­ment:
— Suf­fi­cient maneu­ver­ing space for 40-tonne semitrailer
— Access to the con­tain­er is unhindered
