For this project we provided our client, JCB, with a Container Lifting System. This system was able to save JCB many costs, as it allows them to lift containers for loading anywhere around their site, at anytime of the day without having to wait for cranes.

JCB in Uttoxeter export parts for their large industrial machines to their other factories around the world in standard shipping containers.

This case study explores how our Container Lifting System helped reduce costs for JCB, and improve the efficiency of their operations by reducing waiting times and enabling them to use low cost containers.

Container Lifting Slide3

the challenge

improve efficiency and reduce costs

The empty container is delivered to site for loading. Usually, JCB would hire a crane to lift off the container and lower to the floor for loading by forklift truck. This requires pre-booking of special cranes, significant hire cost and ensuring space for these cranes to operate.

the solution

container lifting system

Using the Joloda Container Lifting System, the system comprises of the Container Jacking system which is 4 free standing posts capable of lifting 35 tonnes in total. The individual legs locate into the corner casting of the container and lock into position via conventional twist locks. All legs are connected to a central control box and operated by a pendant.

This system works out at 25% the cost of a conventional fork truck or cranage typically used to unload these containers.

JCB find this system ideal as they can lift off a container for loading anywhere around their vast site and anytime of the day, there is no waiting time for crane arrival. They load 3-4 containers a week so the cost saving is remarkable.
