Container Delivery Units 


What are container delivery units? 

Container Delivery Units (CDUs) are trucks specifically designed to transport large dumpsters or containers from place to place. They mostly deliver front loader containers, picking up each one by the same pockets front loading garbage trucks use when dumping waste into the truck body.   


CDUs are known by several other names including container delivery trucks, rotator trucks, container trucks, dumpster trucks, dumpster delivery trucks and dump containers. These heavy duty trucks aren’t purchased as often as other large vocational vehicles as the average company won’t use a CDU on a daily basis. They’re only called in when heavy trash containers need to be moved from place to place. The good news is the infrequent use means CDUs tend to last a long time in comparison to other trucks.  




Why do I need CDUs? 

When moving, removing or replacing dump containers, there's no tool more effective than the container delivery truck. For example, the dumpster behind your favorite restaurant or at your apartment complex was likely placed there by someone operating a CDU. If that restaurant changes dumpster companies, it’s the dumpster owner’s responsibility to pick up that container and transport it to its new location. Likewise, their new dumpster company will need to drop off a unit in its place.  


CDUs are also used when a container is damaged by fire, wind or other circumstance and needs to be replaced by a shiny, new dumpster. If the dumpster just needs to be repaired and not replaced, the CDU can also be dispatched to go to the location, pick up the container and rotate it to make maintenance easier.

What are the different types of container trucks? 

Because CDUs are a fairly niche market, there are fewer manufacturers than you may find with other waste management trucks. At Premier, we prefer to stock Palfinger CDU truck bodies and hoists and Kenworth truck chassis.

Palfinger CDU bodies are extremely high quality, strong and reliable. They have over 20 years of experience manufacturing container carrying vehicles, meaning they have an excellent grasp on what makes a great CDU. Palfinger features include: 

  • Inside controls for safe operation.  

  • Continuous 360° rotation in both directions for increased efficiency and convenience. 

  • Twin Lifting Cylinders for added strength and stability when moving containers.

Palfinger CDU bodies are precisely engineered for reliable service and an extended, low-maintenance life, providing an ideal basis for long-lasting CDUs.
