Side loading system- Conveyor system

The most efficient way to load or discharge unitised cargo, pallets and paper rolls is by the shortest possible path – through the ship’s side – using a MacGregor side loading conveyor system. SWLs range from 6–20 tonnes.

The system offers the possibility of installing an outer platform which can be used for larger tidal variations, and is also ideal for reefer ships.

Key benefits of a side-loading system are:

  • Low damage rates;
  • Operation independent of tidal variations;
  • Small demand on port facilities; 
  • High loading capacity.
