Hyster is preparing for its Rhine Tour
Hyster will be putting its equipment on show in its Rhine Tour that kicks off during TOC Europe from 12-14 June in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
A selection of Hyster equipment for ship to store handling, as well as offerings from key suppliers and partners, will then be transported by barge to terminals in Lauterbourg (Strasbourg), France on 21 June, Birsfelden (Basel), Switzerland on 26 June, and Wesel, Germany on 9 July for further events.
"During each event, we will demonstrate how Hyster trucks and solutions can help to overcome the common challenges faced by inland terminals and ports," says Mark Nailer, Industry Manager for Hyster Europe. "Visitors will not only see the range of trucks in action, but also see their efficiency and strength in real life operations."
The core focus of the events is innovation bringing efficiency across the varied handling operations taking place in today's ports and terminals, according to the company. Visitors will see the new hinged elevating cabin option for the Hyster RS46 reachstacker, which optimises direct visibility of second rail containers, on display for the first time. There will also be a demonstration of the latest empty container handler, which supports efficiency and cost savings in inland terminal operations.
The Hyster H25XMS-9 heavy-duty forklift truck will also show its ability to handle containers during the event, particularly for container repair shop operations.
"Inland terminal operations are about far more than handling containers," says Nailer. "That's why at many of these events there will also be a focus on the solutions that support intralogistics processes and handling in port-centric warehouse operations."
