Intermodal / Container Handling|
Booming business in the container-handling field has brought to the attention of many operations managers the high risk of liability created by accidents and freight loss. If your operators are not properly trained concerning the required container handling techniques with large powered industrial equipment, operational costs and safety will get out of hand.
More Containers than Chassis:
Now faced with more containers than chassis, many container ports and yards are faced with even more expense. Going from wheels to ground poses additional safety issues and material handling problems; equipment size, yard size, aisle width, traffic flow, container condition, digging out containers, or what we call "going fishing." Inventory control can, and will, become a nightmare if your operators are not trained.
Shephard's has worked closely with major ports around the United States and the Caribbean to develop and implement comprehensive Empty and Loaded Container Handler Operator Training Programs. Our expertise in the container field has allowed Shephard's to support many cartage companies across the nation to meet their training responsibilities and to help them meet and exceed their training and operational commitments.
Shephard's unique process for training materials development and program implementation has assisted our clients to identify major cost savings in addition to implementing their training. Working with clients, and operating the multitude of containers handlers, has given Shephard's a "leg up" in developing and implementing in-depth operator training materials unlike any other. Our process makes the task of operating container handling equipment and handling containers a breeze.
Unlike Any Operations:
Operating the container handler is unlike any operations in the materials handling industry. Not only are you operating equipment as big as a house, but you may be handling millions of dollars in a single lift. Storage procedures, equipment knowledge, operating techniques, load stability: these are only a fraction of what an operator must know and fully comprehend.
Our credentials include being designated as the training concern for one of the largest container handling manufacturing companies in the World (Taylor Machine Works of Louisville, Mississippi). Shephard's has been providing quality operator training programs direct to Taylor customers for more than 10 years.
