The Dutch company has opted for new port equipment manufactured by Liebherr – a mobile harbour crane as well as a reachstacker.
The LHM 550 mobile harbour crane has a max lifting capacity of 144 tn and an outreach of up to 54 m. It also features Liebherr's software tool Advanced Container Control installed in tandem with the Soft Touch Down system. The reachstacker is of the LRS 545 type, able to stack five containers high.
Kloosterboer has put into operation its new equipment at the company's Vlissingen terminal located in Zeeland Seaports. Most recently, the fruit heavyweight Chiquita decided to land its shipments in the port, while at the same time CMA CGM added Vlissingen to its EURAF service which links the Benelux with West Africa.
"Thanks to our new Liebherr mobile harbour crane in cooperation with the reachstacker LRS 545 we are very optimistic to meet or even exceed the needs of our customers. We now provide all what it take to efficiently unload, store, and distribute fruits and other temperature controlled cargo, conventional as well as containerised," Marc Rommers, Manager for Operations and Technical Department, Kloosterboer, said.
