Fast Freight adds Combilift solution

Romania-based Fast Freight has taken delivery of a Combi-CSS container slip sheet from Irish manufacturer Combilift.

According to Combilift, Fast Freight is one of the first companies in the world to take delivery of the new product, which has been designed to load containers quickly.

Fast Freight will use the container slip sheet in the port of Constanta, where it handles a wide range of cargoes including sheet materials, logs, marble blocks and containers, as well as project cargoes such as paper reels, steel coils and machinery.

Loading goods into containers was a procedure that the company wanted to improve upon in terms of safety and efficiency, leading to a joint project with Combilift. “Safety and the reduction of risk across all operations is a major priority for us,” said Ioana Nedu, export sales representative at Fast Freight. “I believe our collaboration, experience and input has been crucial to the success of this new product. It has also enabled us to increase capacity and margin per load.”

Using the mechanised Combi-CSS system to load products such as steel pipes or timber into containers avoids a combination of forklifts and manual labour, added Combilift. A full load can be assembled on a steel sheet, which is hydraulically guided into the container. A barrier then swings across the container opening and is locked in place. This holds the material within the container while the metal sheet is slipped out from underneath it.

The system has a payload capacity of 30 tonnes.
