Swing Thru is Revolutionising the Handling of Containers

The unique double-sided Swing Thru container handling system is revolutionising the handling of containerised freight. This innovative system saves you time and money when loading and unloading containers.   
The Swing Thru system lifts containers from 10ft to 48ft long weighing up to 35,000kg (77,000lbs) and is operated by the truck driver, without the need for a forklift, crane or specialist operator.

The Swing Thru units are unique in their boom design which has dual action hydraulic rams powering the lifting booms. This innovative feature enables Swing Thru to load and unload containers from either side or trans-ship in one movement, right over the unit and the vehicle it's mounted on.

Safer, Faster, Simpler

Load in just 10 minutes

Loading and unloading freight is much safer, faster and simpler than ever before. You just drive your truck with the Swing Thru system along side the container, attach the dual action lifting boom to the container and lift it across to the truck - what could be simpler!
The detachable Swing Thru units can be clipped onto trucks, trailers or rail decks within just 10 minutes. These highly portable units can use their stabilising legs to lift off the base vehicle. When clear of the unit, the base vehicle can be driven away and used elsewhere.

Operate in Confined Spaces, on Uneven Surfaces

just a 20cm clearance

There are no problems with uneven ground surface, or choosing which side to drive your truck up to the container. The Swing Thru system has a unique design allowing it to be operated from either side of the truck and in confined spaces. The Swing Thru system can lift and position containers with just a 20cm clearance, so you don't need to manoeuvring room for a forklift or crane to shift containers.   
The remarkable Swing Thru system has eliminated the need to have reinforced ground surfaces often required by cranes and forklifts when loading and unloading containers. The Swing Thru system has also eliminated the need for specialist operators.
