Off-Road Delivery Guidelines

When planning off-road deliveries, it’s important to understand the limitations and responsibilities involved to ensure a smooth process. Here are the key guidelines to consider:

Delivery Specifications for Containers

The unloading area must be relatively level. Sloping grounds are manageable if the truck faces up or down the slope; however, parking across a slope can cause the container to potentially jump the tray rail and tip over during unloading.

Ensure a minimum clearance of 4.2m for the container on the truck to safely pass under obstacles like powerlines, trees, and building eaves.
The truck and its mirrors require an opening of at least 2.9m, despite the container’s width of 2.44m.
During unloading, the container’s front top can reach up to 6.5m, which is important to consider when near powerlines or trees.
A 20′ container needs at least 12m of clear space in front for the truck to maneuver and drive away; a 40′ container requires 18m.
