First Terex Liftace 5-31 reach stacker goes to Cuypers Vorkliften NV in Antwerp
Right after the market launch of its Terex® Liftace™ 5-31 reach stacker, Terex Port Solutions (TPS) is experiencing strong demand for the premier model of its new lift-truck generation. The first of the cost-effective, serviceable and ergonomic machines will go to Cuypers Vorkliften NV (Cuypers) in Antwerp, Belgium.
Cuypers hires out lift trucks to terminal operators in the Port of Antwerp. TPS customers in France, Canada and the USA will soon be adding the new Terex Liftace reach stacker to their fleets.
Cuypers: steady increase in fleet capacity
The Liftace 5-31 reach stacker combines the expertise and strengths of the two Terex legacy brands, PPM and Fantuzzi, with many new features. The compact and highly maneuverable machine provides a maximum load capacity of 45 t in the first container row (second row: 31 t, third row: 15 t), travel speeds up to 25 km/h and a maximum lifting speed of 0.45 m/s. With its most recent investments in technology from TPS, Cuypers is continuing to expand the capacity of its fleet and its relationship with TPS. The Cuypers fleet already comprises more than 100 Terex lift trucks. Marc Cuypers, Managing Director, explains: “We and our customers have come to appreciate Terex reach stackers as reliable high-performance cargo handling machines. We were also impressed by the new technological concept of the Liftace 5-31 reach stacker from TPS. With this product innovation in our fleet, our customers can work even faster and more cost-effectively.”
TPS: customers appreciate consistent focus on demand
Klaus Peter Hoffmann, Vice President & Managing Director Terex Port Solutions, is delighted that TPS is meeting the technical and economic requirements of its customers with the new reach stacker: “During the development of the Liftace reach stacker, our international team focused on the demand situation in container terminals throughout the world.
