Whether you load shipping container on 20ft container semi trailer, 40ft container semi trailer or container semi trailer chassis, here are four steps on how to load a container on a trailer:
Firstly, position the container semi trailer in a designated area.
Secondly, the container is loaded on the trailer using a forklift, side loader, reach truck or other types of equipment.
Thirdly, the container is secured in place with twistlocks.
Lastly, do a thorough safety check.
However, it must be mentioned that safety is a collective effort and should be emphasised throughout the entire loading process. Working with various types of equipment, including shipping containers requires undivided attention, in order to avoid accidents in all areas of operations.
