Container handling is a non-stop industry where efficiency is king and downtime can be costly. One company that knows this first-hand is Port of Melbourne-based CC Containers, which prides itself on efficiency, reliability and safety.
CC Containers has once again chosen United to provide them with Konecranes empty container handling lift trucks to expand their container handling fleet with world-class equipment and to optimise efficiency for their customers.
United supplied a total of five Konecranes empty container handlers to suit CC Container’s expanding operational needs. Designed to cope with high demands with both speed and efficiency, the Konecranes empty container handlers in service with CC Containers offer a very fast total operating speed as a function of lifting, lowering and driving speed based on load-sensing hydraulics to cope with extreme demands.
CC Containers’ expanded Konecranes empty container handlers fleet include:
- ECB 80 empty container handler, which can stack 6 containers high up to eight tonnes
- ECB 90 empty container handler, which can stack 7-8 containers high up to 9 tonnes
- ECB 100DS empty container handler which can lift two boxes at the same time, up to 10 tonnes capacity, and stack 6-7 containers high.
“The container handlers are reliable robust pieces of equipment,” said Mr David Muir, Managing Director of CC Containers, whose company places a high emphasis on standards of reliability and safety.
“The other major bonus for us is that the drivers like using them. They have good visibility and comfort and are easy to use, which makes a big difference to staff performance,” says Mr Muir.
In addition to the advanced Konecranes empty container handlers, we also provided CC Containers with an experienced full-time technician, Mr Gene Roberts, who is on-site and can respond to any maintenance or repair issues quickly and effectively. This ensures United can provide CC Containers with optimal levels of efficiency and reliability to minimise any disruption to their business.
“Mr Roberts has been a great help to us at CC Containers. He has helped with servicing, monitoring and OH&S requirements, which means we are always meeting or exceeding compliance and standards objectives,” said Mr Muir.
