One of the most important lessons to emerge from nearly a decade of ISO container movement is the importance of matching the capital cost of the lifting plant at the transhipment point to the volume of traffic handled. Failure in this respect can create bottlenecks, or load each container movement with excessive costs which cannot be recovered from the shipper. The author reviews the wide range of container lifting and handling equipment now available, and explains the advantages of each method for particular applications.
