How can refrigerated cargo containers be delivered?

How can refrigerated cargo containers be delivered?
Most commonly, our containers are delivered via a tilt tray off the back of a truck. The container is lowered mechanically on an angle and slid off, while the truck moves forward slowly. However this method is unsuitable if there are powerlines overhead. Alternative methods include side loader and hiab cranes. Side loaders are best when there’s limited space in front or behind the container area. A hiab crane is used when there isn’t space for a side loader or tilt tray. Use of the crane allows the container to be positioned up a raised area, at an angle or over an obstacle like a fence.
