Tec Container Asia Pacific has successfully delivered the BA-030HT semiautomatic telescopic (20ft – 40ft) over height frame to the prestigious container depot operator – Price and Speed Container Pty Ltd. in Sydney, Australia. This is the second over height frame that Tec Container has supplied to Price & Speed.

Price & Speed Container Pty Ltd is the largest privately owned DoA Depot and WIM Container Freight Station appended to Port Botany. As Price & Speed is approved for a wide range of DoA services, the company handles an extensive range of import and export freight including Out Of Gauge (OOG) cargo. The industry relies on DoA services of Price & Speed throughout the year and entrusts expedient cargo processing to Price & Speed. Similarly, with two yards operating 24/7, Price & Speed relies upon robust equipment. TEC Container with their innovative over height frame solutions are a perfect fit to handle Price & Speed’s OOG cargo.

Price & Speed commented that TEC Container overheight frames have proven to be a complete solution for their needs as they are reliable, easy to use and maintain. The ability to stow them anywhere in the yard when not in use without a dedicated parking stand facilitates our constantly changing and dynamic depot. The universal fit with Price & Speed container handlers and reach stackers have lessened Price & Speed’s overheads and provided tremendous versatility in safe cargo handling.

The BA-030H is a semiautomatic attachment for spreader, designed for handling open-top containers, flat racks and platforms. The BA-030H is a universal over height frame that can be picked up by any ISO spreaders with no need of any extra modification of it. Twistlocks are locked/unlocked, thanks to a semiautomatic mechanism that is operated by the up and down movements of the crane.
