Rail Transfer Solutions

The intermodal capability of the Sidelifter makes it an incredibly useful tool for operators involved in the growing field of rail transportation.

With its inbuilt versatility, a STEELBRO Sidelifter offers the most cost-effective solution across multiple rail applications. Beyond its duty as a container carrier, a Sidelifter sideloader can also be used as the primary intermodal tool, shifting containers directly from rail wagons onto other trailers.

  • Offers an economical alternative to less versatile container lifting and loading equipment.
  • No need for expensive infrastructure, just enough space to load or unload from rail wagons.
  • Eliminates double handling – goods can be loaded directly into containers at the point of production and transported quickly to the railway siding.
  • Enables faster transport of produce and fresh goods to help reduce spoilage.
  • Unloaded containers at large depots can be cleared quickly.
  • Ideal for any size of rail operation.
