Dunedin-based tech company Bison Group is featuring at a major exhibition and conference in Amsterdam this week.

It will demonstrate its portable system for lifting containers at Intermodal Europe, an event for companies associated with the container and intermodal industries. Attracting more than 6000 visitors and 140 exhibitors, it covers all areas of container transport and logistics across road, rail and sea.

Bison was founded by brothers Mark and Greg Fahey in 2014 who developed what they believed to be a world-first portable container-weighing scale. Its technology was used by Emirates Team New Zealand and the America's Cup Event Authority in Bermuda earlier this year. Other customers include Nasa, the United States Air Force and Virgin Galactic.

Recognising conventional container handling equipment was typically big, heavy and expensive, Bison's compact and portable alternative equipped importers, exporters, engineering contractors and logistics operators lift heavy containers on and off chassis in any location.

The Bison C-Lift was launched in August with widespread interest across Europe. First units had been shipped to the Middle East, South America and the United Kingdom, chief executive Greg Fahey said.

Alongside the C-Lift, Bison would also have its range of portable container-weighing scales on display.
