With the ground guide watching closely, drive the PLS truck backward very slowly and push
the CROP (3) into the ISO container, using the rear wheel steering capability of the PLS
truck to guide the CROP. If the CROP appears to be out of alignment inside the ISO con-
tainer, stop backward movement and pull CROP forward several feet, then use the rear wheel
steering capability of the PLS truck to realign the CROP. After the CROP has been properly
realigned inside the ISO container, again drive the PLS truck backward very slowly and push
the CROP into the ISO container until CROP front twist lock housings are inside the ISO
container, but before the PLS truck rear wheels (7) contact the loading platforms (6).
Lower the PLS hook arm until the CROP is resting on the ISO container floor, disconnect the
hook arm from the CROP, and pull the PLS truck forward approximately three feet.
Remove both loading platforms (6).
