A New Horizon in Waste Management - Bulk Intermodal Container Transfer and Dumping (From Railhead to Dump Area) 961755

An ISO (International Standards Organization) intermodal container handler has been developed to haul and top dump intermodal ISO type shipping containers.
Municipal solid waste disposal is a material handling business and as larger regional/national landfills are constructed, solid waste is moved farther away from its point of generation.
As the volume and distance that solid waste moves increases, containerized solid waste rail haul becomes the transport of choice. Containerized solid waste transport requires specialized material handling equipment to haul and dump containers of solid waste from a railhead to the landfill working face.
