When I say “Container Unloading” it could mean either unloading a container off a ship or unloading the contents of a container. Here I will be talking about unloading the contents of a container.
There are a few methods available to unload a container of its contents, the type of cargo will determine the method used.
Unloading Palletized Cargo
When cargo comes already palletized then it is best to use either a fork-lift, clamp-truck or a pallet-jack. For large items such as fridges and furniture it the box allows the clamp truck is a great option. For items such as boxes or good a manual pallet jack or forklift are great options.
Unloading un-Palletized Goods
In this case when items arrive with no pallets it is best to use a lumper service such as the one offered by LumperHQ. As the best way to unload this type of load is using manual hand bombing.
Container unloading can also refer to removing shipping containers from a container ship . Here is a video showing containers being unloaded from a container ship at a port. Also check out more information about Unloading Shipping Containers In 2020
