Any defence operation needs a good logistics system behind it to keep it supplied and to enable sustained high-performance in action. Hiab Government Business Operations has been supporting defence forces for over three decades, and the global requirement for Hiab load handling systems in defence logistics has grown by tenfold from its inauguration in the mid 1980s. To date, Hiab Government Business Operations has supplied over 40,000 defence products for forces worldwide, providing flexible and highly effective logistics support.
As pioneers in load handling, we believe the best way to shape the future is together with customers, answering real-world challenges. Our award-winning HiVision™ connected system is our latest answer. Incorporating Virtual Reality goggles, controllers, and connected cameras, you gain more precision, savings and safety while opening new possibilities for autonomous operation.
As global interoperability becomes a key operational requirement, the hooklift concept is recognised as the most cost-effective way to provide fast, flexible frontline logistic support. Standardised flat-rack capabilities allow our MULTILIFT hooklifts to carry and switch between multiple payloads such as artillery ammunition, water, fuel, shelters and ISO containers – an advantage proven in United Nations humanitarian support missions and major conflicts worldwide.
Today's payloads are as diverse as human imagination can conceive. Hiab Government Business Operations specialise in effective, compliant solutions to match any need – from manoeuvres to deployment to meeting the challenges of the last tactical mile. With our rough-terrain forklifts, hooklift concepts, cranes and more, you have a range of capacities for any suitable prime mover, subject to engineering interfaces.
We understand that every moment and movement saved is an advantage out in the field. That’s why our cranes have the option for Crane Tip Control (CTC) so you can move the crane tip quickly and precisely with minimal effort. The computer selects the ideal path from one point to another so you can focus on your load instead of on your crane’s motion.
