  • Two TC 45 reach stackers in operation at the Mundhra Container Freight Station (CFS)
  • Additional reach stacker currently in use at Kandla Port

Terex has delivered three of its TFC 45 reach stackers to the Mundhra Container Freight Station (CFS) in India.

The first two units were commissioned in November in the presence of Captain Navjeet Grewal, Director of Mundhra CFS Ltd. for its customer Excellent Engineering & Allied Services.

Both units are currently operating in Mundhra Port & Special Economic Zone (SEZ), India's largest private port and special economic zone situated in Gujarat.

The third unit was commissioned in December, and is now being operated by Aditya CFS, a sister company of Mundhra CFS, in the Port of Kandla.

terex"October to April is the peak season for Mundhra CFS, and these machines will be working up to 22 hours a day in an extremely hot and salty environment," said Nicolas Pricak, Terex after-sales engineer, India.

"The TFC 45's hydraulic system is extremely durable so they can run virtually non-stop."

Reliability was one of the reasons that motivated Mundhra Ltd's purchase decision, as Captain Grewal explains, "Our TFC 45s' long-interval maintenance design is something that we can rely on to handle our customers' port logistic infrastructure's high throughput.

"For this application, a time proven and reliable design was of paramount importance, and our three new TFC 45 reach stackers have precisely that reputation."
