What are Gantry Shipping Containers?

Gantry shipping containers are containers designed to be used as gantry systems. These containers have a gantry system inside of them which helps in lifting and unloading heaving equipment in and out of the shipping containers.

Ports Containers have developed a new range of Gantry Containers to help Heavy industries load and store their goods with ease. No longer will you need forklifts, trolley jacks, or any other heavy lifting equipment to load your container. Our gantry systems allow a one-man operation to load and unload heavy items inside your container.

Our Gantry Containers help load goods with ease!

Our Gantry Containers are ready to order, built to your needs. But you may be thinking what is this Gantry System built into this container and how can it help me? The gantry system is comparable to an overhead crane which is fixed to the roof of the container, designed for multi-axis operation with an overhead bridge. The arm of the crane can extend outside of the container to pick up heavy items. The block and tackle pulley can lift items up and lower them once the gantry arm has been pulled back into the container and maneuvered to the desired position. This can all be operated by one person easily as the gantry can safely lift anything up to 1 tonne in weight. Heavy items can be delivered next to the Gantry Container ready for loading, no need for an onsite forklift.

Gantry Container Types & Sizes

We can build these Gantry Containers out of 10ft, 20ft, and 40ft shipping container sizes – all fully engineered and certified! For our 20ft and 40ft units, we can install the Gantry unit in General Purpose, High Cube, or Side Opening Containers. Side Opening Gantry Containers give you the most accessibility when loading heavy items. Easy load the crane with your heavy goods and move the item anywhere inside the container. It’s a one-man operation, easy and efficient.

We can also retrofit these Gantry Containers to house hazardous materials (Dangerous Goods) or even explosives. These units are a great asset for the mining and construction sectors which need facilities to store their heavy equipment and dangerous goods
