When it comes to Empty Container Handling, Hyster has a wealth of experience in increasing capacity and productivity, and smart solutions. With Hyster, double container handling can be done quickly, safely, and with loads of up to 11-tonnes.

More efficient

Being able to double your load significantly reduces equipment movements on your yard. Moreover, by optimising your yard for double handling, you can further increase throughout and boost efficiency.


Handling two containers instead of one, may look challenging, but in an operation optimised for double container handling, efficiency and safety go hand in hand. By separating traffic flows and essentially banning lorries from driving in between container stacks the risk of interference between equipment and lorries or pedestrians can be reduced.

More TEU through higher stacking

If you’re dealing with space restrictions, high cost of real estate, and increased demand for productivity, why not go higher? Hyster Empty Container Handlers are designed for double handling with optimal stability, enabling you to stack up to nine containers high and place more TEU on your yard in a quick and reliable manner. Same space, more capacity, less cost per container moved.
