Completing the revolution started by Malcolm McLean
Radical new approach to loading containers and enclosed trucks unveiled at the Wood Technology Show
Container Stuffers LLC (CSL), today announced at the Wood Technology Show in Portland, Oregon a radical new approach to loading cargo, freight, and logs that may well transform the shipping industry. Two new products being introduced today, the C-Loader and the K-Loader aim to complete the revolution that Malcolm McLean started.
Many people think that the shipping container was invented in China. In fact, an American Malcolm McLean invented the shipping container in 1956. McLean was not an ocean shipper, but a trucker and he changed the world by transforming the way that ships and trains were loaded. Using the simple concept of standard sized boxes, which were designed for easy transfer between trucks, trains and ships, McLean cut the cost of loading freight by 90%. CSL’s equipments will increase the effect McLean had by an additional 50%-60%.
CSL has taken the loading of trucks and ship to a new level. Troy Williams, CEO of CSL said, “The C-Loader increases loading output by 60% and can load up to 40 containers in one 8-hour shift with one machine and 2 forklift operators.” Williams added, “You really have to see it in action. The bottom line is that that our equipment can load an entire 40-ft container in 4 minutes”. Moreover, it optimizes the container load by enabling more than one layer of freight/cargo. The C-Loader progressively measures and balances the total load by a built-in scale weighing system, generates a manifest specific to the individual container while reducing the typical damage to the shipping container during the loading cycle.
The K-Loader is specifically designed to load logs and can maintain or increase container output by reducing costs by 50%. It can transfer an entire truckload of logs (55,000 lbs. gross) into a container in 10 minutes (full cycle), 4 minutes just for load transfer. The K-Loader eliminates collateral damage to the container. Container Stuffers, LLC will be exhibiting at the Oregon Convention Center (booth #708) March 9-11. People not able to attend the show are encouraged to see the equipment in action by going to the CSL website at www.containerstuffers.com. People looking for additional information specific to the K-Loader can go to www.logstuffers.com page within the Container Stuffers website.
