Container Forklift – Toplift

The container handling forklift, while operated under the LF forklift licence, is very different to a conventional counterbalance type forklift. These are massive machines in both size and weight – a fully loaded container handler can weigh in excess of 100 tonnes. Container Forklift Training is a workplace-based training solution.

Gold Coast

Container handling forklift training is delivered as on-site workplace training. Above all, it is conducted by experienced industry specialist trainers. Therefore trainees can learn the fundamentals of operating safely and correctly in their workplace.


Of note, licencing is regulated by Worksafe Queensland. Consequently, licence holders are required to maintain competency. As a result, licences must be renewed every five years.

We Work With...

Thank you to the team from One Stop Training for the Straddle Carrier, Driver and Spotter training you delivered to our team. The training delivered to both our new drivers/spotters and recertification of our experienced drivers was much appreciated.

We were comfortable with the whole process from beginning to end. The assistance we received in tailoring the program to meet our specific and unique requirements was excellent, nothing was too much effort and One Stop Training kept in constant touch to ensure we were happy with the proposed training before it went ahead.

The trainer was experienced and knowledgeable in the operation of a range of straddle carriers and heavy plant machinery which made the new drivers feel immediately at ease. Even our experienced straddle carrier drivers were impressed with the trainers industry background and his ability to translate this to our particular model/brand of straddle carrier.

We would use One Stop Training again and recommend them to others who require a training provider experienced in the operation of specialised plant equipment in a high risk work environment.
