A portable container lift which allows operators to handle boxes in any location has been launched as a more economical alternative to traditional container handling solutions.

The BISON C-Lift P32 is easily transported between sites, sets up in minutes and allows containers of up to 32 tonnes to be lifted on and off of trailers safely and efficiently.

“A big challenge if you want to lift containers outside of a freight hub is finding suitable equipment to do the job,” said Greg Fahey, CEO, BISON.

“So often, the size or weight of the container, space restrictions on site, or simply a lack of suitable equipment in the area, mean that cargo movements are compromised or costs are unreasonably high.”

BISON developed the P32 to solve this problem and sees the product as opening up a range of new possibilities for container freight and logistics because it avoids reliance on local infrastructure.

It allows importers and exporters to lift and ground containers more economically in factories or warehouses. This enables container stuffing or unloading in better locations, or ease the pressure of live loading and chassis detention costs.

A key part of the P32 design is BISON’s patent pending lift and lock mechanism, which reduces the size of the hydraulic system considerably, but still enables heavy containers to be elevated 1.65 metres off the ground. This in turn reduces the size, weight and cost of the system.

New Zealand based BISON Group Limited is a fast-growing tech company offering a unique range of container lifting and weighing solutions to the market.
