Liebherr Container Cranes to deliver seven straddle carriers to Rotterdam, NL

By: | at 12:47 PM | Channel(s): Ports & Terminals  

Liebherr Container Cranes has secured an order for the delivery of seven (7) straddle carriers to ECT Delta Terminal in Rotterdam. ECT has placed the order for the Liebherr SC340S. These machines will stack 1 over 2 high and are supplied with a 40 t Stinis single lift spreader. The straddle carriers will mainly operate in the landside interface zone, shuttling between the automatic stacking cranes and trucks. In addition the straddles will handle multi trailers for intra terminal transfer for onward transport by train or barge. The Liebherr straddle carriers are linked to a remote positional tracking system, providing real-time accurate information on the position and handling rates of containers within the terminal.

ECT Delta Terminal is the largest terminal in Europe and one of the major trade gateways of Europe.
