Fridenson Logistics has purchased two eco-efficient Konecranes BOXHUNTER RTGs for its inland container terminal near the port of Ashdod.

BOXHUNTER has a system of counterweights that is inspired by the counterweight technology commonly found in elevator design and which is believed to be a first in RTG design. The counterweight system brings down energy costs because it eliminates the weight of the spreader from every lift. On average, this amounts to a 25% lighter load with every lift.

Tomer Trop, COO of Fridenson, said: “The new RTGs will improve the efficiency of our Ashdod terminal and contribute to the excellent service that we provide to our clients.”

Ergonomic design

The two BOXHUNTER RTGs on order will be 16-wheel machines which enable the operator to sit and work in an ergonomic heads-up position. The cabin is located down at the sill beam by the truck lane and the operator also has direct line-of-sight to the main truck loading and unloading action.

Video cameras and laser scanners give total visibility over every container move. Fridenson’s BOXHUNTER RTGs will also be equipped with the Auto-steering and Auto-TOS-reporting features.

BOXHUNTER is an attractive RTG concept for inland logistics companies because it’s delivered in containers, said Konecranes. This means it’s easy to transport overland, and it’s erected quickly.

The cranes will be delivered in autumn 2019.

Another two units have already been delivered to another inland container terminal near the port of Ashdod.
