• Hyster Rhine Tour: 12th June - 9th July

    Lauterbourg (Strasbourg), France / Birsfelden (Basel), Switzerland / Wesel, Germany

    Hyster Europe is hosting a series of events along the River Rhine showcasing solutions for efficient inland terminal operations. 

    Hystr Rhone Tour MapThe Hyster Rhine Tour kicks off during TOC Europe from 12-14 June in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Hyster® trucks will be on display to present the latest Hyster solutions to support port and terminal applications. A selection of Hyster® equipment for ship to store handling, as well as offerings from key Hyster® suppliers and partners, will then be transported by barge to terminals in Lauterbourg (Strasbourg), France on 21st June, Birsfelden (Basel), Switzerland on 26th June and Wesel, Germany on 9th July for further events. Inland terminal operations are about far more than handling containers and that’s why at many of these events there will also be a focus on the solutions that support intralogistics processes and handling in port-centric warehouse operations. The core focus of the events is innovation, bringing efficiency across the varied handling operations taking place in today’s ports and terminals.

    Visitors will see:

    • The new hinged elevating cabin option for the Hyster® RS46 ReachStacker for an intermodal handling specification, which optimises direct visibility of 2nd rail containers, on display for the first time.
    • There will be a demonstration of the latest Empty Container Handler, which supports efficiency and cost savings in inland terminal operations. The specific Empty Container Handler model featured in the Rhine Tour has been specially engineered to feature a 3-stage tilt back mast, allowing maximum flexibility on sites where height restricted access may be encountered. With a tilted mast, the truck can be driven under bridges or low hanging areas commonly found in terminals.
    • The Hyster® H25XMS-9 heavy duty lift truck will also show its ability to handle containers during the event, particularly for container repair shop operations. With a rotating front spreader attachment, the truck is capable of handling a 40ft container lengthwise which simplifies driving it into the workshop and allows it to be positioned so that repair engineers to work on it comfortably from a standing position.
    • Hyster Europe will showcase its lower cabin height option, available on the H8.0-9.0FT truck series. With a reduced cabin height, compared to a standard forklift, the Hyster® H8.0FT lift truck is suitable for restricted height handling applications commonly found in terminals, such as stuffing and unloading containers or the back of lorries.
    • For a shore to store solution, Hyster® H3.0FT and H3.5FT lift trucks, with tough 3-stage FFL masts, are a popular choice in inland terminals. During the Rhine Tour events, the H3.5FT will be fitted with a multi-pallet handler attachment, while the H3.0FT will be fitted with a rotator attachment. This will demonstrate how this range of trucks can be customised to suit the particular needs of a port or terminal operation.
    • Warehouse operations are increasingly being added to inland terminals to complement container handling activities, so visitors will also have the chance to learn how the Hyster® P2.0S pallet truck, the S1.6IL pallet stacker and the LO2.0 low level order picker support efficiency and a low cost of ownership. The Hyster® R1.2 Reach Truck with a tilting mast is also ideal for operation in tight confines, while still maintaining full lift capability when handling pallets at height in the warehouse.
