Hiab Launches Multilift Commander Unit for Container Handling
Logistics Manager

Swedish manufacturer Hiab has recently unveiled the MULTILIFT COMMANDER an innovative new product for container handling in a safe and efficient manner that will allow users to load or unload containers from a truck in remote locations where no loading facilities are installed.

The MULTILIFT COMMANDER container handling unit was originally devised for logistics solutions for government organizations. The unit is an application for the critically acclaimed MULTILIFT XR21 hook lift that enables both ISO 1C and 1CC freight containers, and DIN standard demountable flatracks, to be handled by the same truck.

Hiab Director of Sales and Product Business Management for Demountables, Henri Janhonen said, “This is a new application for the commercial hook lift market. It adds value and versatility to our customers’ hook lift trucks, as switching from handling flatracks to lifting ISO containers weighing up to 16.5 tons can now be done with the simple push of a button.”

He further explained, “It effectively means that our customers can transport a container to any location that a truck can access, where no infrastructure such as a port crane or heavy forklift truck exists, and drop it off and collect it again at any subsequent date. The cost savings and flexibility that this provides will make a massive difference to their ability to transport goods to and from inconvenient sites, or remote locations. Uses for the MULTILIFT COMMANDER include cargo and intermodal applications, or large warehousing, construction, and project logistics.”

Although new to the commercial market, the product has been in operation for several years in the government sectors.

The MULTILIFT COMMANDER can be used for numerous applications, such as factory to terminal transportation from remote sites; Greenfield infrastructure projects; special logistics applications and fire and rescue services.
