Load Transfer Stations
Columbia designs Load Transfer Stations with safety and efficiency as top priorities. Each LTS model allows the operator to remain on the forklift during machine operation. The cycle time of the transfer process is approximately 60 seconds and eliminates the need for manual pallet handling.
Operated by the forklift driver, the Basic Load Transfer Station pallet transfer machine is made up of a frame, receiving deck and transfer plate. It can be set up to be loaded and unloaded from either side. Driver places a unit load onto the receiving deck and returns with an empty GO TO pallet to hold under the transfer plate during the transfer process. The LTS has an internal upstacker with a 15 pallet storage capacity.Download Brochure

Increase Forklift Efficiency
The Load Transfer Station with Pallet Cart is a standard LTS with the addition of a pallet cart. The forklift driver places the GO TO pallet on the pallet cart, and then activates the machine via the pull cord to extend the receiving deck. The unit load is placed on the receiving deck and the driver activates the transfer process allowing the transfer to automatically complete. The LTS has an internal upstacker with a 15 pallet storage capacity.Download Brochure

WHAT IS A LOAD TRANSFER STATION?
Load Transfer Stations are capable of transferring products that are packaged in cases, barrels, drums, bags and pails from one pallet to another including Plastic, Chep and GMA pallets in both receiving and shipping applications. Columbia's Load Transfer Stations (LTS) optimizes your facility's lift truck productivity, reduces labor and shipping costs, prevents contamination from entering production areas AND prevents injuries. Load Transfer Stations have proven to be safer & faster than load inverters.
