Hyster, one of the world's leading manufacturers of lift trucks and container handlers for port and terminal operations is exhibiting at this year's TOC Europe (Terminal Operations Conference and Exhibition), from 17-19 June.
Visitors to the show, to be held at the RAI exhibition centre in Amsterdam, will find Hyster at stand D8. A dedicated team of specialists will be on-hand to answer questions and offer advice about how to optimise the handling and flow of containers and goods in ports and terminals.
Hyster provides a full range of solutions suitable for various applications in ports and terminals, where reliability is essential, including dedicated empty and laden container handlers, reachstackers and a variety of forklift trucks.
“TOC is an important event in Hyster's calendar” explains Peter Madoc-Jones, Product Marketing Manager for Hyster “It provides the opportunity to communicate specifically to the Ports and Terminals industry, not only to demonstrate how Hyster products deliver dependability and efficiency to operations, but also highlight the superior level of service support, which is delivered by our extensive network of distribution partners.”
In time-sensitive port operations, dependable equipment is essential to maintain the consistent flow of containers and goods. “Reachstackers, container handlers and big trucks are significant investments, and it is therefore critical for companies to make the right choice, to ensure that they generate the required return on investment, through maximising productivity and effectively managing operating costs.”
Hyster is committed to continuous product development in order to meet the ever changing demands of customers' handling requirements and this year sees an upgrade to Hyster's series of ReachStackers.
Improvements include the introduction of a longer wheelbase, which allows for a reduction in overall truck weight. This contributes to reducing fuel consumption and tyre wear, helping operations become even more environmentally friendly and economical.
The counterweight has also been restyled with a more rounded shape at the wheels, to allow for better visibility around the sides of the truck, and a deeper central cut-out profile to enhance rearwards visibility, making the new design more operator-friendly.
Hyster has a long established history in manufacturing dependable big trucks and container handlers for demanding 24/7 operations at its factory in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. Hyster's products are supported by the most comprehensive independent distribution network in the industry, helping to maximise customer's productivity and efficiency, and reduce overall operating costs.
