handling needs at ports, terminals and port centric warehouses in the
hinterland require materials handling equipment of all sizes and types, at
various stages of the supply chain, from ship to shore to the store and onto
the shop floor” explains Kate Pointeau, Brand Manager, Hyster.
The complete Hyster range includes ReachStackers, container
handlers, high lift capacity (up to 48 tonnes) forklift trucks, Fortens® IC
forklift trucks from 2-9 tonne lift capacity, electric forklift trucks and a
variety of warehouse equipment.

Ship to Shore to Store
Hyster is a global supplier of ReachStackers, Container
Handlers, and high capacity forklift trucks, used to transfer and stack shipping
containers in ports and terminals, throughout the Middle East. For markets
not regulated by EU legislation, the
Cummins QSB6.7 Stage IIIA diesel engine is
available across the Hyster Big Trucks range.
Once transferred from the container yard to a port
centric warehouse, pallet trucks and forklifts of various sizes are used to
unload the containers and transfer palletised goods.
"It is essential to match the truck to the
application intensity, particularly for container de-stuffing" says Kate.

equipment and Reach Trucks.
equipment helps businesses to achieve greater efficiency and optimise picking
and packing operations," Kate says.
“We aim to keep
businesses moving and have made a significant investment in developing some of
the toughest and most reliable warehouse trucks on the market.”
While reliability is fundamental with regards
to costs, throughput and driver productivity, other factors contribute to the
ultimate goal of reducing the customer’s total cost of ownership, such as
energy efficiency and truck performance.
The powerful Hyster® JXN electric forklift range is
one of the most energy efficient on the market, helping businesses to reduce
carbon footprint and energy bills and get better shift life. With
pneumatic and cushion tyre variants, the tough 1.5–5 tonne capacity models excel in indoor or outdoor arduous operations. Such
robust design and outstanding traction was previously only
expected from IC trucks.

pallet and stacker trucks provide high reliability, power and precision with a
low cost of operation.
In picking operations, pick speed and reliability
are essential. The Hyster low level order picker with scooter like control is
designed to get the best performance from individual pickers, ensuring loads
are placed at the optimum height for the operation with maximum machine
reliability. At height, pickers gain maximum pick face access using the Hyster
K series of rising cab order pickers, with fast simultaneous lift and
horizontal movement (using rails or wire guidance).

operators efficiently retrieve pallets in high intensity operations up to
17m. Delivering one of the quickest VNA
transits in the industry, the horizontal movement intelligently combines with
vertical movements, and the patented QUAD form mast design provides rigidity
and torsional strength, with proven reliability.

lift speed of 0.8 metres per second, up to 12.5 metres.

“To support the decision making process and help specify the right mix of trucks, we can use 3D warehouse simulation software to
demonstrate how Hyster products will work in the application before they are
specified or implemented,” Kate explains.
Once in operation, the fleet can be managed effectively with the
Hyster Tracker, a Wireless Access Monitoring
System that helps keep
forklift trucks running for even longer and even more productively.
support the efficient flow of goods
through busy port and terminal operations, Hyster also offers a range of camera
and sensor solutions for reachstackers and counterbalance trucks. They provide the driver
with a sharp view of important locations inside and outside the driver’s field
weather-proof active signaling system that pairs radar sensing with a camera
system, is designed to detect stationary and moving objects in zones
potentially obscured from the operator’s view. It also audibly warns the
operator when an object is detected.
Forklift camera solutions also help to enhance
productivity, providing the operator with a better view of the fork position,
load and surroundings -even in low light.
Positioned within the operator’s natural field of vision, it also eases
the strain, enabling the operator to work more quickly, efficiently and
seat options are available to suit different requirements, including mechanical
or air suspension, fabric or vinyl covers, 3-point seat belt, heating, high
backrests and headrests, providing a comfortable environment for the operator.
Hyster products and services can also be tailored,
as required, to the most specific and demanding environments such as explosion
proofing and where attachments are required.
