SHERPA Goods Only Lift – with no pit requirement

Efficient vertical transport of your goods

The SHERPA goods only lift  is our real all-rounder. It is an efficient and simple to plan solution for vertical transportation of goods in an industrial environment.

In its standard configuration, the SHERPA has a load capacity of up to 4,500 kilograms and a lifting height of up to 18 meters (with two to six stopping points). The lift is delivered as a free-standing structure with sheet metal cladding. The required pit depth is very small and can be altogether avoided by choosing the ramp option. No building modifications are required. The lift can be easily integrated into existing building and rack systems. Thus, the installation is fast and easy.

This goods only lift is a tailor-made lift. We work closely with our customers, extend our flexibility to design and offer fully customized cabin sizes.

As the name "goods only lift" indicates, the SHERPA is the solution which enables transportation of goods only. If it is necessary to assist the goods, the ESCORTA goods lift is a great alternative. Contact us for more information!

Move more, do more.

Improve business productivity by moving more, in less time.

The SHERPA can now move up to 4.5 tonnes which reduces unloading time and increases throughput. It is now possible to reach similar lifting capacities as a hydraulic lift with all of the space saving benefits of the SHERPA. No pit, no machine room, a selfsupporting steel frame shaft and much shorter installation times all resulting in a smaller overall project cost.

Special designs in terms of size, conveying height and material possible on request. Technical specifications for planning purposes only. Subject to change.

Possible applications of SHERPA:


In production facilities, freight and goods lifts enable the fast and easy movement of goods between different levels. In this way, production processes can be linked and improved across several floors.

Our SHERPA goods lift can transport goods up to 4,500 kg and is highly advantageous with installation without building modification. 

Logistics and Distribution

Goods and freight lifts are optimally suited for use in logistics companies. Tailor-made and easy to install, the goods lift can simplify and improve process flows to a great extent.

Extremely compact and space-saving, our SHERPA goods lift fits into logistics centres and warehouses. It can be integrated into both existing and new buildings and transports goods weighing up to 4,500 kg.

Event and Shopping Centres

In event and shopping centres, goods and heavy loads have to be transported quickly. With the help of goods and freight lifts, easy transport to different levels away from visitors and at the appropriate delivery points is possible.

Our SHERPA goods lift can also be integrated into existing buildings and racking systems. In addition, it comes complete with a self-supporting steel frame shaft, so there is no need for a machine room or pit.


For optimal logistics in hospitals, a goods lift is the perfect solution. Medicine, clean linen and food are delivered daily. A centrally located passenger or bed lift is often not sufficient, as deliveries are almost always at the back of the building.

With a load capacity of up to 4,500 kg, our SHERPA goods lift is a cost-effective and efficient solution.
