Liebherr's successful year

Entreprise Portuaire de Skikda, Algeria, Hawaii Stevedores, TM International Logistics Limited, India and Cardinal Logistics, India were amongst newcomers to Liebherr's order book last year. The company highlights the contract with TM International Logistics as historic as it opened up the Indian market and led to seven consecutive orders for Liebherr harbour mobile cranes by Indian customers within a couple of months.

Of follow-up orders, the most demonstrative one says Liebherr was from the Iranian Ports and Shipping Organisation for one unit LHM 250, one unit LHM 320 and one unit LHM 400. With these three units PSO now has 27 Liebherr harbour mobile cranes in operation within its various terminals in the Iran.

Another long-time purchaser and operator of the LHM range is Belgian stevedore Westerlund, in Antwerp. Westerlund went for an LHM 320 for the handling of china clay at its Kaolin terminal. Most of its earlier 11 LHM cranes are used for handling pulp and paper, containers and general cargo.

Two remaining follow-up orders were placed by Klaipedos Terminalas and Interporto di Venezia. Liebherr can now look forward to its next major anniversary - the 500th harbour mobile crane to be put in operation - which is almost certain to be celebrated this year.
