What is a Loaded Container Handler?

Top pick container handler transporting a loaded container

A loaded container handler is used to move large shipping containers across a port terminal or loading site. Loaded container handlers can typically lift over 40 tons, which is why they’re able to move containers that are filled.

Loaded container handlers grab containers from the top, which is why they’re also called “top pick forklifts”. Top pick container handlers attach to the tops of containers with twist-locks at each of the four corners.

Typically, loaded container handlers offer a greater stack height (5 or 6 containers high) than other options because they lift via a straight mast. The straight mast of a top pick forklift offers more stability and strength, however, it also limits top pick container handlers to stacking in one row only.

Although loaded container handlers don’t offer much in terms of stacking depth, they require fewer dead picks when handling. This means that top pick container handlers require fewer movements in order to get to a certain container, giving loaded container handlers faster restacking and higher selectivity than other options.

Loaded container handlers offer stability for all of your container transport needs. Find the best deal on a loaded container handler near you with Forklift Inventory.
