Mönkemöller's new H40XM-16CH laden container handler
Logistics and forwarding company Mönkemöller Speditionsgesellschaft mbH has received a new Hyster H40XM-16CH laden container handler to increase the flexibility of its handling operations.
At its 10,000 sqm depot in Bielefeld, Germany, Mönkemöller provides a range of logistics services, such as full and empty container storage, container forwarding and container weighing. The company, which is owned by Kuehne + Nagel, one of the world's leading logistics providers, has been using Hyster trucks for more than 30 years and was happy with an existing H32.00F-16CH laden container handler. However, as the weight of containers handled in the operation has increased in recent years, a new, higher-capacity truck was needed.
"The Hyster H40XM-16CH can handle loads of up to 40 T and achieve a lift height of over 9.75 m, which is a better fit for the current requirements of the application," says Arndt Reibold, big trucks territory manager for Hyster. "This ensures maximum flexibility throughout the company's various handling activities," he continues, explaining that the truck can stack laden 9.5 ft. (2.9 m) containers up to four high in the first row, offering fuel savings of up to 20%.
In addition, the Hyster laden container handlers can perform container shunting operations rapidly, reliably and with a low cost of operation. This helps deliver high 'box-rates' in first row only operations, as the handler can perform faster than many reachstackers in the first row. The rear-mounted Vista cab also benefits the application by providing good all-round visibility with a clear overhead container view.
To meet Mönkemöller's container weighing requirements, the new truck has been equipped with the Hyster Static+ weighing system.
