Guatemalan banana exporter Chiquita has ordered three Konecranes reach stackers for its Terminal Ferroviaria in Puerto Barrios.

The first two reach stackers, a Konecranes SMV 4632 TC5 and a Konecranes SMV 4632 TC6H are already on-site. The third, a Konecranes Liftace 4532 TCE5, is on route to the port. 

“We are leaders in the tropical fruit market,” says Ramses Lobo Ortiz, Chiquita’s regional manager logistics. 

“To maintain our position, we need the best quayside equipment available. Konecranes offered us reachstackers that are already improving our efficiency, simplifying our processes and lowering our costs.

"Once all three are on-site, their high performance and advanced systems will further streamline our operations.”

Genar, Konecranes distributor in Central America and the Caribbean, will provide after-sales service and spare parts for these new deliveries.
