Tru Bilt – docking and container loading solutions

Attending the RWTA conference in Noosa, Queensland in September, James Cunningham met representatives of Tru Bilt, a New Zealand company that specializes in docking and container loading solutions. While South Africa has a number of companies that offer similar products, Tru Bilt showed pictures of an installation they had recently completed in Walvis Bay, for a company that has also installed Storax mobile racking. In this application, refrigerated containers are placed on the ground and loaded with full cold chain protection.

The containers, once loaded, can be moved via container handlers, truck mounted hoists or by lifting them with corner jacks (watch video here) and reversing a trailer underneath. The pros and cons of ground loading when compared to a raised docking area deserve serious attention.
