Logistics BusinessSwedish port receives Konecranes reach stacker

The Port of Trelleborg in Sweden has received a Konecranes intermodal reach stacker for trailer and container handling at its intermodal terminal. This new lift truck replaces an older unit that has reached the end of its service life.

Across the five Swedish core ports, Trelleborg is second in terms of throughput tonnage. In addition, it’s the largest railway port on the Baltic Sea, and the most sustainable port in the region. It uses two intermodal reach stackers to provide fast, reliable and eco-efficient intermodal services between ship and rail.

“Intermodal traffic has been growing strongly in recent years, so it’s important for us to maintain our position as a leading intermodal hub,” says Thomas Ter-Borch, Port Operations Manager, Port of Trelleborg. “We’ve been very satisfied with Konecranes equipment, so we’re confident that our new Konecranes reach stacker will help us to continue to provide our customers with the highest levels of sustainable productivity.”

“The fact that Port of Trelleborg chose a Konecranes reach stacker again highlights the quality of our products and the excellent service and business relationship provided by our long-term local distributor N.C. Nielsen,” says Daniel Sjöstrand, Sales Support Manager, Lift Trucks, Konecranes.

The new reach stacker is a Konecranes SMV 4538 CCX4, a sturdy lifting machine that can safely stack 45 tonnes in the first row up to four containers high. Despite a long wheelbase of 7,500mm for extra stability, it is extremely manoeuvrable, and a special combi spreader can handle fully laden containers from the top and trailers from the bottom across more than one track. The truck features a spacious, ergonomic OPTIMA cabin with easy-to-use controls and excellent visibility. It runs on HVO100 renewable diesel and meets the emission requirements for an EU Stage V engine. TRUCONNECT Remote Monitoring follows the truck’s performance through usage data securely stored at the yourKONECRANES.com customer portal.
