Corner free container transport. The trailer platform is equipped with container guides, so called “Bumpcar shells”. They will support the 2x 20ft, 30ft, 40ft and 45ft container on the side. The crane can drop the container on the chassis and continue to pick up the next one. SATL’s (semi-automatic twist locks) can be removed on the trailer on an ergonomic height. This will speed-up the process.
