This report summarizes the results of these tests, identifies deficiencies in the initial prototype design of the Intermodal Container IMCON and Hooklift interface HIK, and provides recommendations for design changes to correct such deficiencies. Limited time trials revealed a mean time of 1.60 minutes to upload a fully loaded IMCON on-to a PLS truck which is very similar to the times required to upload the standard PLS flattrack. The mean time to pick up and load a fully loaded 8 ft x 8 12 ft x 20 ft ANSIISO container onto a PLS vehicle using the HIK is 8.11 minutes.
