"Companies are realising that in many cases, a vertical lifting container system is a superior solution to traditional container handling equipment," says Fahey.

New Zealand-developed vertical container lifts are winning recognition as a viable alternative to traditional container handling equipment, their maker claims.
BISON C-Lifts are now operating in over 20 countries, according to CEO Greg Fahey – the portable jacks "emerging as viable container lifting equipment – challenging the mid-range container handling market…
"Companies are realising that in many cases, a vertical lifting container system is a superior solution to traditional container handling equipment," says Fahey.
"Previously, the only options were capital-intensive pieces of equipment, or at a pinch, hiring a crane. Given the size and cost of traditional CHE, buying these big machines can be a little like using a sledgehammer to crack a nut!
"In other words, the size and cost of traditional container handlers puts them out of reach for many operators."
Container jacks give organisations the ability to assert more control over their container shipping operations. at a fraction of the cost of traditional equipment, he says.
And now, Fahey adds, "importers and exporters are realising they can eliminate scheduling frustrations by owning their own container lifting system.
"A coolstore customer of ours was frustrated with the shortage of haulage companies with the capability to also put containers on the ground. By installing their own container hoists on site, they have taken back control of their container logistics and are able to work with a wider range of haulage companies – cutting costs and making it easier to ship on time."
Container owners are also benefiting from the small footprint and portability of C-Lifts, Fahey says: "Contractors are now delivering their containerised assets into secure facilities on schedule, without the hassle of co-ordinating third-party crane hire, and getting containers on and off trucks around the globe in remote locations."
