Lift shipping containers anywhere, anytime.

Sector: Other

Invested: December 2014


Founded by two Kiwi brothers, the catalyst for BISON was a smart scale system that the Fahey brothers developed to help shippers adapt to the IMO's new container weight verification rules. In the following years, they have continued to innovate and provide solutions to problems that shippers and logistics providers face. 

BISON container lift systems give you the power to lift containers on and off trucks without relying on third-party lifting services and heavy handling equipment. With BISON's range of container lifting and weighing systems, you get independence and control over your container logistics, and a return on investment through lower operating costs, better asset utilisation and improved safety.

  • Help extend the reach of containerisation (assisting with site accessibility restrictions)
  • Increased efficiency of import and export operations
  • Improved safety and sustainability 
  • Fast, automated container lifting
  • Weigh containers anywhere, anytime - including instant digital weight certificates
