A year back there has been new rule implemented in UAE for transporting goods across Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. The goods must be enclosed in a boxed trailer or should be put inside a container. The companies that used to load using sideways started having problems with loading containers as they can only load form the rear with forklift and then pushed inside.
Here are some of the ways to load a container and its pros and cons of doing it.
i, Grounding the container (Side Loader/ Lifter)
One of the most common ways to load/unload container is with side loader/lifter. A truck that has a side loading device. This enables the truck to pull up beside your warehouse area and offload the container directly off the side.
There are advantages and disadvantages of Side Loader to load/unload Container.
ii, Container unloader
Container load/unload method is the method where the container picks itself up off a trailer, with the help of removable hydraulic legs then lowers itself to the ground after the trailer drives away the vehicle. Note that this method does not allow for moving the container horizontally. The container just goes straight down from where it sat on the trailer.

iii, Unload with Crane
A crane is what many people commonly associate with container offloading. They offer a lot of flexibility but can be expensive to have on site. The crane itself is a vehicle, and an additional truck/trailer will be needed to separately transport the container.
iv, Use Forklift Ramp
There are many benefits of using a forklift ramp. A ramp is basically a platform for the forklift to go inside the container to load/unload the container faster. Ramp is the new and innovative way to load/unload container faster which saves time, efforts as well as increases safety. Most of the companies use this method nowadays to load/unload container.
