Konecranes works closely with intermodal experts in civil engineering, terminal design and consultancy to deliver best-in-class intermodal container handling.
Konecranes is a very experienced provider of lift trucks optimized for intermodal operations
High throughput workhorses
Our offering includes Rail Mounted Gantry (RMG) cranes, man-driven or automated for accurate, smooth and efficient container handling in intermodal yards with high throughput. We also offer Rubber Tired Gantry (RTG) cranes with patented Active Load Control technology that eliminates container sway. Konecranes RTGs are an excellent fit for intermodal operations that are too big for reach stackers, but too small for RMGs.
Konecranes also offers reach stackers and container lift trucks for both laden and unladen container handling. Konecranes lift trucks have a wide range of appreciated standard features including an ergonomic cabin, load-sensing hydraulics and a strong box chassis. And a wide range of optional features such as hybrid power and engine start/stop.
Connecting the Specialties
"The bigger cranes bring benefits. We have a lot of flexibility and much more capacity with this design. We will save time and money. It's an enormous improvement to our procedures."
