Also at TOC Europe in Hamburg on June 14, 2016 Konecranes introduced a new Rail Mounted Gantry (RMG) crane: Boxporter.
According to a company statement, the new crane “offers the clearest view in intermodal container handling with its “smarter cabin”, which gives the operator superb visibility and comfort. It also gives the operator an extended view to truck and train loading and unloading and container stacking thanks to video and control information displayed on the cabin monitor.”
Konecranes has been delivering RMG cranes to intermodal operators for many years and the new Boxporter is built on a modular design approach that provides the benefits of standardisation. The goal is a fast delivery time, high container handling productivity, excellent reliability, low maintenance and long service life. There is also an evolution path to remote operation and full automation.
