A Cargo Lift Device and a Cargo Shuttle System    

The cargo lift is an in-board interior lift gate or elevator system. The cargo shuttle is a dry-van or refrigerated truck body add-on module, mini container

Overview

The cargo lift system is an elevator type platform device that resides within the interior confines of a dry van type truck body. The cargo lift floor is a level section within the perimeter of the van body floor.

The cargo lift module is an attachable module with an inclusive cargo lift system, capable of being coupled to a conventional dry van or refrigerated van type truck body.

The cargo shuttle module when grounded (parked), self raises by means of ejecting the lift platform floor within, enabling it to be mated to a pre-loaded land / sea cargo container. Connection is with standard sealink couplers. Once coupled (piggy-back fashion), the unit can be trucked to a series of destinations, utilizing its integral lift platform device to off-load merchandise. The emptied unit may be directly returned to sea dock for module disconnect. Emptied container is set for re-schedule.
