Ports & Terminals
Transport Chemicals and Plastics With Ease
With over 90% of U.S. imports coming through ports, it’s never been more important to ensure your operation can keep up with changes and withstand all the challenges of the industry. Port and intermodal terminal businesses face plenty of safety concerns and logistical bottlenecks, which is why it’s crucial to ensure you’re applying automation when you need to and can.
Whether you’re transferring ocean containers from ships to trains and trucks or you’re transferring containers and cargo inland, it’s crucial to evaluate your operations to feel confident you can address increasing fuel prices, workforce shortages, regulations, and overcapacity concerns. We’re proud to offer useful equipment from Combilift, allowing you to pick between the cost-effective straddle carrier and the versatile Combi-MG for oversize loads. You can also explore other products from Yale, Manitou, and TICO.
Avoid Challenges From Workforce Shortages and Strict Regulations
Many port and intermodal companies struggle with retaining employees and avoiding downtime, but we’re here to make it an afterthought.
How do you stay ahead of OSHA regulations and workforce shortages?
Telematic systems are standard on Hyster Container Handlers and reach stackers, allowing you to ensure only qualified operators access the equipment and track training updates. It even requires the completion of an OSHA pre-shift checklist before the equipment will operate, ensuring you avoid unplanned downtime due to infractions.
Reduce emissions and keep up with green initiatives through the solutions at Alta Material Handling.
Does your equipment allow you to keep up with green initiatives?
We carry container handlers that have EPA Tier 4 Final compliant engines that are designed to reduce emissions and harmful particles while delivering up to 20% less fuel consumption over Tier 3 products. The on-demand cooling system also decreases noise effects to be thoughtful of the environment as well as the operators.
Reduce Downtime and Stack Effectively
Overcapacity is an issue for many companies in the port and terminal industry, but there’s no reason to overrun your fleet that results in service issues that interrupt your workflow.
What are you doing to ensure you aren’t missing the mark?
Looking to stack or unstack up to 9 containers high? Consider one of our empty container handlers to ensure you’re able to increase productivity and driving speed.
We carry reach stackers and rail reach stackers to ensure you have the ability to start different types of containers effectively.
Our fleet management program will ensure you have the right size lift truck for your needs. You can also help extend the useful life of your equipment through maintenance plans.
