Project Freight Forwarders Might Appreciate Free Standing Overhead Crane System

Modular Construction Means Easy Installation and Removal
Shipping News Feature

US – As a rule even project freight forwarders have little use for overhead crane systems, the need for fixing within a structurally sound building means that unless a system is already in place, they are of little or no use when it comes to cargo specific operations. Now however the latest innovation from material handling specialist Abell-Howe might just prove the right solution in certain circumstances, being completely free standing and designed for easy disassembly and relocation.

 The new Free Freedom system requires no tie-offs to building structure and with its capacity up to 10 tonnes its modular runway system is ideal for situations and facilities where installation of overhead cranes are not practical or structurally permissible, yet necessary. The device will certainly appeal to anyone in the supply chain needing an overhead lifting capability yet working in locations such as temporary buildings.

The Abell-Howe Company has been designing, engineering, manufacturing, and erecting overhead material handling systems for over 95 years and the Free Freedom is made in the USA, and is available in standard modular configurations for quick delivery, or as specially engineered systems to accommodate specific requirements.
