Lift on / lift off (LO/LO)

Lift on / lift off (LO/LO) refers to a method of loading and unloading cargo containers, where a crane or other similar equipment is used to lift the containers on and off a ship or truck. This method of handling containers is typically used when the cargo is too large or too heavy to be loaded and unloaded by hand, or when the equipment used to handle containers is not available. LO/LO is a common method used in ports and terminal operations.
