Let Our Container Handling Experience Help Your Business
The Mobicon is the number one choice of mini-straddle carrier by many logistic companies, manufacturers, importers and exporters as well as the US Navy and Australian Customs.

What Our Clients Are Saying...

“TOLL SPD originally acquired a Mobicon in 1999 as it was the only container handler available on the market that had the flexibility to handle all sized containers, including 48’ curtain-siders, and is designed with ideal wheel loadings suitable to our yards. We have since purchased another 4 Mobicons for our various depots, as this unit is still the only handler on the market capable of minimising on-site congestion as well as keeping our handling costs down.”

Kerry Quirk
Operations Manager

“Previously our docks were capable of unloading 2 containers on 2 trailers at any one time. We can now unload 4-5 containers at the same time which spreads our labour costs and increases our productivity”

Michael Miller
QLD State Manager

Instead of staff working at a trailer height of 1.5 metres, they are now working at a safe 300mm off the ground. This alone was a major contributing factor for the implementation of the Mobicon to this business.”

Wade Price

Mobicon Saves Cost by Improving Container Handling Workflow

Major Cost Savings+

Major Cost Savings

  • • A Mobicon is more cost-effective than other container handling options like forklifts, reach stackers & large straddle carriers.
  • • A Mobicon reduces the waiting time for the transporter, as it takes the container off the truck in minutes.
  • • Using a Mobicon eliminates hiring costs for sideloaders/self-loading trailers.


  • • Greater flexibility in where you can pack & unpack containers. A Mobicon will place the container where you want, close to your goods and even inside or under awnings, making packing and unpacking easier.
  • • Allows you to separate transport from operations. There is no need to divert staff to unpack/pack a container when a truck arrives. You decide when to unpack/pack the container.


  • • Mobicon’s are built for lifting and moving containers, and unlike forklifts have a very low centre of gravity so will not tip over.
  • • Reduces traffic in your yard or warehouse, with reduced forklift traffic and reduced risk of accidents.
  • • Empty or fill the container on the ground, not from at height. No need for loading docks or slippery loading ramps.


  • • Mobicon cabins are contained within the width of the unit. This means less chance of damaging the cabin, and less space required between containers.
  • • One and half, and two axle mini-straddle carriers cannot be used in regular yards as their wheel weight is too high. Increased yard reinforcement is required to withstand their weight or long-term structural damage will occur.
