Container Stuffers inks first deal with British Columbia Company for their recently introduced C-Loader
“Company to utilize C-Loader to load finished lumber into shipping containers”
Tacoma, WA—(November 1, 2010) – Container Stuffers LLC, today announced that they have formally executed an agreement with an undisclosed customer in the lumber loading business in British Columbia for up to 2 of their C-Loaders. Container Stuffers (CSL) introduced the C-Loader at the Material Handling Institute’s NA 2010 tradeshow in Cleveland in April.
“We are delighted to take this historic first step in revolutionizing the shipping industry,” said David Haywood, VP of Marketing at CSL. Our first customer chose our C-loader to achieve a very aggressive daily container loading target,” Haywood added.
Not since Malcom McLean invented the shipping container and revolutionized the industry in 1956 has there been such an accomplishment until now. While attending the Material Handling Institute’s NA 2010 tradeshow Cleveland in April, CSL heard from companies that were trying, unsuccessfully, to get their truck loading time down to 30 minutes. Many companies complained about extensive product damage resulting from traditional loading methods that negatively impacted the bottom line. Others sited forklift accidents and carbon monoxide hazards.
CSL’s equipment loads an open or enclosed truck, or 20-53ft. shipping container in 4-minutes. The nature of the loading methodology dramatically reduces damage to products while at the same time yields clear physical safety benefits to the forklift operators eliminating the danger of carbon monoxide poisoning from driving into an enclosed space during loading.
All CSL products incorporate a built in scale weigh system with six individual load cells displaying weight and the center of gravity of the load before loading to avoid over weight and out of balance loads. Overloading of a container or truck presently requires an expensive return visit to the loading dock to adjust weight; poor weight balance can make vehicle handling unsafe.
Haywood concluded his statement by stating “CSL now looks forward to the opportunity given by this contract to demonstrate to our customer and to the international market that we can build the fastest, safest and most cost effective system for filling containers, in the world.”
