The Benefits of Empty Container Handlers for Port Terminals

Port terminals require a variety of specialized material handling equipment to keep containers moving between the sea, road and rail. Container handlers are a particular type of forklift designed to efficiently lift, handle and move shipping containers to optimize storage in port settings. These vehicles come in two types: empty container handlers and loaded container handlers. 

Empty container handlers, or lift trucks, remove and store space-wasting containers that have been emptied of cargo. These vehicles display exceptional maneuverability to quickly and precisely stack empty containers. Made to be extremely durable and long-lasting, an empty container handler comes with a load capacity of eight to 10 tons, and some models can stack up to eight containers in one stack.

To keep containers moving, ports need empty container handler tires that can manage outdoor sites with uneven terrains.
