UCLS In The Field:

Universal Container Locking System

The UCLS system was devised on the premise that the container shipping industry needs a single, safe, easily adaptable and truly automated system for securing containers during transport, across the entire container supply chain. It is designed to improve safety for dock workers, rail workers and truckers while improving productivity, environmental sustainability and profitability for shipping companies, railroads and terminal operators.

Locking and unlocking containers on ships and trains, "twistlock handling" is dangerous, time consuming and expensive for the maritime and rail container shipping communities.
