toc-2019-250At TOC Europe from 18-20 June 2019 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, Hyster Europe will showcase products and innovative handling solutions for ports and terminals. Visitors can also get an update regarding the progress of the zero-emission Container Handler projects underway at the Port of Los Angeles in the US and Port of Valencia in Spain. 

At the event, specialists from Hyster Europe will talk about the Stage V compliant Big Truck range, powered by Mercedes-Benz/ MTU engines. Hyster® Lift Trucks over 8 tonnes, Container Handlers and ReachStackers offer lower fuel and DEF consumption and benefit from high productivity levels.  

The company will also speak about the spreader support device option for its Empty Container Handlers that make the inspection process of an empty shipping container faster. A Lift Truck with special attachment, which can easily move a 40ft container into a repair workshop with narrow doors, and then rotate it, will also be discussed.

Solutions that help terminals handle containers on railroad cars in the second rail position will also be shown. This includes a hinged elevating operator cabin option for the Hyster® RS46 ReachStacker which helps operators to have direct visibility of the top corner pockets on the second rail containers, even when there is a high cube container on a railcar in the first rail position. 

On Thursday 20th June, during TOC Europe’s annual TECH TOC seminar sessions, Jan-Willem van den Brand and Willem Nieuwland from Hyster Europe will also share the latest information about two Laden Container Handlers and one ReachStacker currently in development.  The zero-emission machines incorporate electricity at high voltage as the main energy source to power fully electric motors.
