The Container Unloader in action

Companies that manually unload trucks or containers put employees at risk injuries for repetitive lifting and fatigue. When this occurs it can cause employees to slow down, resulting in the need for several people to complete the task. Consequently the task becomes more expensive for the company.

The U.S. National Safety Council found that work injuries cost $167 billion dollars in 2021. These injuries result in wage and productivity losses, medical expenses, administrative expenses, and employers’ uninsured costs. Additionally, other employees might be unable or unwilling to fill in for such physically exhausting tasks leaving companies scrambling. Since implementing the Container Unloader, Yusen found they used fewer employees to unload a container in less man hours with higher employee satisfaction.

Our Container Unloader has demonstrated impressive ROI

As seen in the Yusen Logistics case study.
