Emergency Rigging Supply Saves Customer Five Figure Sum


Shaw Lifting was called to site late one evening by a customer who had a 5 a.m. deadline to deliver a large wooden container of trestles to a local port or face a five figure penalty for missing its loading slot.


The customer had no suitable rigging to load the 35 tonne container on to a flatbed lorry. We assessed the lift and had delivered from the stock at our depot a 100 tonne Modular Spreader Beam and two 50 tonne WLL Polyester Round Slings and Shackles suitable for the job.

Our engineers assembled the beam and slings on site, rigged them to the overhead crane and connected to the container to be lifted onto the lorry. We oversaw the lift to ensure it was carried out safely and correctly and provided certificates for the equipment so that the lorry could easily make its delivery on time.
