ABP’s Port of Ipswich in the UK has announced an £170,000 investment in new Linde forklift trucks to improve efficiency of port operations.
Global lifting equipment provider, Konecranes, has signed a long term agreement with German forklift truck manufacturer, Linde Material Handling, to acquire certain assets of the business and increase the global competitiveness of their container handling truck activities.
Linde Heavy Truck Division Limited has signed two major contracts worth around €3m ($4.1m) with Chittagong Port Authority.
Multinational engineering company, Linde, has opened a second 900 m² heavy truck assembly facility at its UK Merthyr Tydfil plant as part of a £ 16.5m investment program in new products and infrastructure. Giraffe House 2 will be used to finish the construction of vehicles that are capable of stacking up to eight 9'6" high freight containers.
By creating an independent business unit, Linde Material Handling aims to boost its heavy truck business and occupy a stronger position in the global market.
Linde is adding to its existing reachstacker capacity with a facility in China. The factory in Xiamen has been building empty container handlers from Linde kits since 1996, but the company has confirmed to Port Strategy that reachstackers are being added to the production line to meet growing demand.
