Belgian cargo-handling and storage business Mexico Natie has added eight Konecranes forklifts to its fleet, taking its tally to 20 machines.

The company has used Konecranes lift trucks to handle and store an ever-growing amount of cargo every year since 2010.

The new machines will increase Mexico Natie's handling capacity at three different terminals in the Port of Antwerp, Europe's second-largest seaport: Port 740, 5th harbour dock and Blue Star terminal. The machines will handle all kinds of cargo, from containers to steel coils, crates and various other break bulk goods, including stuffing and stripping in and out of containers.
 
Mexico Natie's latest purchase includes both long and short wheelbase lift truck models. Machines with a short wheelbase are ideal for tight spaces such as warehouses and narrow quays, as they have exceptional manoeuvrability. Marc Ivens, CEO of Mexico Natie, explains: "We have 160,000 sqm in warehousing space and rely on Konecranes short wheelbase lift trucks to handle cargo quickly, safely and efficiently. We remain impressed with the machines' powerful design and performance."
 
The order for two reach stackers and six forklifts also includes a SMV 17-1200 C which is a 17 T capacity forklift with Konecranes' box-type chassis, a special heavy-duty lift mast and a reinforced carriage.
 
The order has been fulfilled by Heavy Handling, Konecranes' distributor in Belgium.

"We have a strong and long-lasting relationship with Mexico Natie, built around our service and after-sales reliability," says Heavy Handling spokesman Pieter Sanczuk.
