The Container Unloader addresses warehouse and distribution centres’’ lifting needs and solves lifting challenges with its mobility and adaptability to fit different operations. It also has user-friendly controls that operators learn quickly.

  • 3. Integrated ergonomic vacuum lift- it can lift items up to 88 lbs. (50 kg) and is a one-handed operation that allows the operator to grip items from any angle as well as rotate them. Also, it’s on a mast that can be raised or lowered and on an arm that allows it to move side-to-side and forwards/backwards to help operators reach items.
  • 4. Mobile conveyor belt- can adjust upwards, downwards, inwards and outwards for improved reach and ergonomics.
  • 5. Safe operator platform- it can be raised or lowered to give the user optimal reach, has safety rails that can move into position behind the operator, and has a built-in stabilizing system to help when travelling over inclines.

The Container Unloader in action

When companies manually unload trucks or containers, employees face the risk of injuries from repetitive lifting, suffer fatigue leading to decreased productivity, and often require several people to meet unloading time frames. The associated problems can incur significant expenses.

According to the HSE in the UK, statistics revealed that an astounding 36.8 million working days were lost due to work-related ill health and non-fatal workplace injury in 2021/22 and the annual cost of work-related injury and new cases of ill health cost £18.8 billion in 2019/20, £3.5 billion of which was absorbed by employers.

Workplace injuries can create a domino effect, with employees taking time off and colleagues having to fill vacant positions, which affects the overall efficiency of business operations.

The Container Unloader presents a compelling solution with a proven Return on Investment (ROI), as exemplified by the success of Yusen Logistics. In a case study, they demonstrated a substantial reduction in the number of operators and person-hours required for container unloading when utilizing the Container Unloader compared to manual lifting.

Yusen Logistics, using TAWI’s solution, achieved the unloading of a container with only three operators in 13 person-hours, costing £211. This significant reduction in operators and unloading time resulted in a decrease of £113 per container cost. Extrapolating this to their annual operations—averaging two containers per day, 10 per week, and 520 per year—the Container Unloader’s £113 per container savings amounted to £59,228 annually.

Make the smart choice for workplace safety and efficiency by integrating TAWI’s Container Unloader into your operations. Experience not only a reduction in injuries and associated costs but also a substantial financial benefit through increased efficiency and minimized staffing requirements.
