Empty container handling up to four times faster with BLOK

BLOK container products deliver a complete solution for all aspects of empty container handling and potential solutions to make future laden handling much more efficient.

BLOK makes the process faster, safer and greener while enabling terminals to make more money with less work and delivers faster turn-around for shipping lines, which can be deployed for ‘slow sailing’ saving fuel and emissions.

BLOK Spreaders are electric spreader adaptors stationed at the port which convert any spreader into a tandem lift spreader able to lift blocks of 2 columns of empty VTLs in one lift.

BLOK Trailers guide, transport and then feed twistlocks into the corner castings. Automatic jigging speeds up spreader operations.

The BLOK Rig automatically strips and feeds SATs into the corner castings and will remove and fit the twistlocks from containers in single, tandem and VTL. The basic manual BLOK Rig can fit four twistlocks semi-automatically under a container, and remove four twistlocks semi-automatically from a container.

The BLOK Cert also makes use of the BLOK Rig and offers a proof test load and certification.
