TRANSFER VEHICLE OPENS THE DOOR TO SMALL CONTAINER TERMINALS

The ULS vehicle, a rail-mounted unit financed by German's Federal Ministry of Research and Technology, is designed to perform intermodal transfer of containers from road to rail and vice versa. All handling gear is hydraulically powered and the vehicle requires an adjacent track from which to load or unload a train. Cantilever arms, when swung out on both sides, allow a spreader to lift and transfer a container across the ULS to a car, road vehicle, loading platform or the ground.
