Empty container handling up to four times faster with BLOK

BLOK container products deliver a complete solution for all aspects of empty container handling and potential solutions to make future laden handling much more efficient.

BLOK makes the process faster, safer and greener while enabling terminals to make more money with less work and delivers faster turn-around for shipping lines, which can be deployed for ‘slow sailing’ saving fuel and emissions.

BLOK Spreaders are electric spreader adaptors stationed at the port which convert any spreader into a tandem lift spreader able to lift blocks of 2 columns of empty VTLs in one lift.

BLOK Trailers guide, transport and then feed twistlocks into the corner castings. Automatic jigging speeds up spreader operations.

The BLOK Rig automatically strips and feeds SATs into the corner castings and will remove and fit the twistlocks from containers in single, tandem and VTL. The basic manual BLOK Rig can fit four twistlocks semi-automatically under a container, and remove four twistlocks semi-automatically from a container.

The BLOK Cert also makes use of the BLOK Rig and offers a proof test load and certification.

BUSINESS DESCRIPTION

Heathrow is the largest UK port by value and our ambition is to become one of Europe’s best airports for cargo. We have listened to our customers and developed a cargo strategy that will take us there.

Our customers have told us about the bottlenecks caused by some of the infrastructure, inefficient facilities and processes that are slower and more arduous than those of our European competitors. Our stakeholders rate us as poor for our facilities and value for money.

Our cargo strategy will lift freight volumes to 3 million tonnes a year by 2040 through improved service and increased capacity from a third runway. With two runways or three, for cargo customers our aim is to become a trusted partner – timely, reliable and easy to do business with.

Our plan for cargo

Halve current throughput times to be more efficient

Make cargo throughput times predictable to reduce costs

Grow cargo capacity at the airport to generate additional cargo volumes for our airline partners

Work with the cargo community, including through engagement and discussion

Be 100% e-freight compliant to reduce waste, costs and delays

Be a great airport of choice for cargo

Provide a safe working environment.
