HIAB Crane

HIAB CRANE SHIPPING CONTAINER TRANSPORT

This delivery method uses a truck mounted crane. The vehicle pictured has the crane mounted on the rear, some vehicles have the crane mounted just behind the cab, but for container deliveries it is best to use rear mounted. This method is best suited where there is limited space in front or behind the truck where the container is to be located. It is also the best way to position a container at an angle to the delivery truck (e.g. 90 º, 45°, etc. See picture 3 & 4) or up on a platform/raised area, over colourbond/chain wire fences etc. The truck can off load the container to either side or the rear of the truck.
