Brochure: Baggage handling made easy

The “e” in e-CLS is for ‘electric’ as this container loading system is powered by electricity. There has been great demand from our customers for an electrical solution, as many do not have access to compressed air. In response to them, we’ve designed and built our e-CLS: the perfect electrical lifting aid for loading all types of baggage into containers. The CLS is also available in a pneumatic version.

Ergonomic and quick

The e-CLS Container Loading System is the optimal choice for lifting baggage into containers or carts at airports. It has handles on the sides for maximum control and ergonomic movement in all directions. The handles have well-placed maneuvering buttons, making it suitable for both left and right-handed handlers. The table is programmed to automatically stop at the perfect height for loading. The e-CLS reduces the risk of spinal disc compressions that may ultimately cause back injuries. It loads a minimum of 10 bags per minute and is as fast as it is user-friendly.

Easy to maneuver

The machine is equipped with breaks that can lock the table in all directions. When the operator grips the handle, the table is automatically unlocked, and the e-CLS is ready for use! Baggage is loaded onto the table, which the operator can move vertically or horizontally, and unloading takes place without any heavy lifting. The traverse system makes the e-CLS mobile and easy to work with. Bags move friction free because of the metal ball rollers on the table.

The machine is equipped with four control buttons for vertical movements, one on each side of the handle. These buttons also control the built-in lamps that shine into the container, making it easier to see where to place the bag. The jog buttons on the pillar make it possible to raise and lower the table past its working position, when the maneuvering handles are too high to be reached. With a push of the “up” button, the table is raised up and parked at the top. It automatically goes into sleep mode/ power save mode, out of the way of the baggage handler. The next time it’s needed it can easily be lowered with the “down” jog button.

Safety functions

A red emergency stop button is placed on the pillar. As soon as it is activated, the power supply cuts off and the machine stops in its tracks.
The machine also senses if the load is too heavy and will stop. This reduces the risk of unforseen injuries due to overweight loads.

What are container loading systems? 

Container loading systems are specialized equipment and technologies designed to efficiently and safely load cargo into shipping containers for transportation. These systems are used in various industries including aviation, logistics, and shipping, to maximize packing speed, improve safety and optimize the container loading process.

Lifts All´s Container Loading System, the e-CLS, primarily operates as a lifting equipment at airports for lifting baggage into containers or carts.


How does the container loading system work? 

There are different types of container loading solutions that operate differently. Lifts All´s e-CLS is very easy to maneuver. The operator loads baggage onto the table, which is equipped with metal ball rollers. These rollers make the bag move friction free. The operator can then simply slide the bag from the conveyor into the cart or container, without strain. The table can be moved both vertically and horizontally, and loading takes place without lifting.

Lifts All also offers the e-CUS, a system for unloading containers instead of loading. Instead of a table with metal ball rollers, this piece of equipment consists of a conveyor that forms a bridge between the container and conveyor belt. You can read more about the e-CUS here.


Benefits of using a container loading system 

Container loading machines offer several benefits to the logistics processes at airports. Some of the key advantages include: 

Reduced Labor Costs

Injuries are common when manually loading carts or containers at airports. Using a container loading solution instead of lifting manually can significantly reduce wear-and-tear injuries and thereby lower sick-leave at workplaces. Hence, businesses can help improve workplace safety, lower labor costs and improve overall efficiency.

Faster Loading Times

Loading containers is a time-consuming and heavy process. Container loading systems do not get tired. Therefore, operators that use container loaders can load containers much faster than by lifting manually. This acceleration in loading times increases overall productivity and throughput, reducing waiting times for flights and improving supply chain efficiency.

Improved Safety

Airport workers that  spend their days loading and unloading containers are often subjected to work-related injuries. Container loading systems can help improve safety in the workplace by reducing the need for manual handling of heavy loads. This minimizes the risk of accidents and injuries associated with manual loading processes.

Customization and Flexibility

Lifts All´s efficient container loading systems offer customization options to accommodate various types of carts and container sizes. This flexibility allows businesses to adapt their loading processes to meet specific requirements and boost efficiency.

Optimized Container Space Utilization

Container loading systems can help optimize the placement of goods within containers by maximizing the use of available cargo space. This helps to reduce wasted container space and allows for more efficient packing, ultimately leading to cost savings in transportation.

Environmental Benefits

Optimizing space utilization with a container loading system can reduce the number of containers needed for transportation. This in turn helps reduce fuel consumption and emissions associated with shipping, contributing to environmental sustainability efforts.

Overall, container loading systems offer a range of benefits that can help businesses increase efficiency, reduce costs, and enhance safety in their logistics operations.
