Air Cargo Lift with Hydraulic Powered Bridge Provides Easy Access at Loading Area
Our customer who is a leading company in the logistics and distribution industry entrusted Autoquip as a preferred supplier to provide a specialized cargo lift to assist in their day-to-day operations. They needed an air cargo lift with a bridge that would span through to the garage door opening and far enough out to meet the trailer for on / off loading. When the garage door is open the bridge is lowered to carry out cargo transfer and then can be raised up when the garage door is closed. Since this is an ongoing process, the customer preferred an easier method for lowering and raising the bridge.
Our team of engineers designed a hydraulic-powered bridge that extends out from the lift platform with push button controls. Inverted casters and brow rollers were added to both the lift platform and the bridge platform to move cargo with less effort.
After the air cargo lift with powered bridge was introduced, the customer was able to handle their loading/unloading process in a much safer way. The team was able to easily move pallets from the truck and into the building and transport them to their destination.
