Orbital Swinglift Conex Box Intermodal Services

Conex boxes go by many different names; intermodal containers, Sea cans, shipping containers, or ISO containers, however, regardless of the name given, the purpose and design of these steel modular structures is to allow for intermodal shipping– the movement of containers from one mode of transport to another (ship, rail, or truck) without the need to load and unload, then reload its contents.

Our unique intermodal sidelifter mobile crane trucks are capable of lifting and moving fully-loaded conex shipping containers. The sideloading truck and trailer allows us to lift conex containers straight up and set them straight down (no tilting)! Orbital intermodal sidelifter trucks utilize self-contained loading technology and can safely transport and handle fully loaded 10, 20, 40, or 45 foot conex storage containers.

History: The origin of standardized steel shipping containers dates to World War II, when commercial shipping operators and the U.S. military developed a way to efficiently ship goods overseas and across the country while keeping them safe.

The logistics method associated with this type of shipping was referred to as Container Express and abbreviated as “ConEx.” This abbreviation became universal and was later used to identify the entire category of shipping containers – eventually becoming a single term: Conex.

Conex boxes come in a variety of standardized sizes and capacities: 20-ft containers are the most common, followed by 40-ft, and then 10-ft containers and all are typically 8-ft wide and 8-ft 6-in tall.
