Combilift Slip-Sheet Loads Containers Safely & Efficiently
Loading a container is labour intensive, it takes a long time and carries with it the risk of injury to operators as well as damaged goods. Using a mechanised method reduces the need for manual handling and therefore increases safety. This was the impetus behind the recent development of the Combilift Container Slip-Sheet (Combi-CSS), which speeds up container loading whilst protecting the workforce.
The 30,000 kg capacity Combi-CSS is a low, free-standing platform with a dual-directional hydraulic pulling mechanism, on which a steel sheet rests. A full load of product can be prepared on the sheet which is then guided into the container. A 20’ container can be loaded in just three minutes and a 40ft in just six minutes. When fully loaded, a hydraulic rear barrier gate swings across the container opening and is locked in place. This holds the material within the container while the metal sheet is slipped out from underneath it.
One of the first Combi-CSS models was delivered to Fast Freight Srl. Romania, a freight forwarding company that wanted to improve its container loading procedures. “Safety and the reduction of risk across all operations is a major priority for us,” said Ioana Nedu, Export Sales Representative, “and we use various Combilift products to handle the very diverse loads we ship around the world. The Combi-CSS has enabled us to enhance safety whilst also increasing capacity and margin per load.”

FASTER, SAFER LOADING OF CONTAINERS
The Combi-CSS was developed to significantly speed up the loading of containers while increasing safety to operators and minimising damage to the product.
Loading a container is labour intensive. It takes too long and risk of injury to operators and damaged goods is significantly increased. It may take more than one forklift and multiple operators to load the goods inside the container.
The Combi-CSS, or Container Slip-Sheet, is a simple-to-operate, cost-effective container loading solution that is faster and safer whether handling rough sawn timber, flat-packed furniture or panel products.
Loads weighing up to 30,000kg, are assembled on the platform outside the container. An entire load cycle can be performed by a single operator. In fact, a 40-foot container can be fully loaded in as little as 6 minutes.
