New machines give Freightliner and Pentalver a lift

[ August 27, 2020   //   ]

Rail operator Freightliner and container logistics firm Pentalver – its sister company in US-owned Genesee & Wyoming – are investing in 75 new lifting and handling machines at container terminals throughout the UK.

The first batch of 35 machines have been delivered with the remaining 40 due to follow in the coming months.

They include Hyster reachstackers, Terberg terminal tractors, and Hyster empty container handlers offering some of the latest telematics, providing live feedback on the machine’s health, together with key operational data relating to lifts, fuel usage and non-productive running.  The Tier 4 engines produce lower emissions and auto shut-down, along with comfortablecab ergonomics and full air suspension.
