Taking loading to a new level

[ March 21, 2018   //   ]

Equipment maker 2nd Level Solutions is offering a new solution to increase space available in trucks, sea containers or airfreight ULDs by creating a second cargo floor.

Payload Porter, which has a patent pending, is available either in reusable plastic or in recyclable cardboard. The plastic version is available to rent while and the single-use cardboard version can be purchased.

The manufacturers say that the device can be simply and quickly installed around the palletised load then fork-lifted onto the first level of the container, creating a flat second level for other goods with a maximum load of 500kg. The system allows for varying pallet heights or loose cargo to be placed on the first level thus creating a completely flat floor for the second level.
