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

SEPARATE CRANE (organized by us or yourself)
