Terex Cranes announced the delivery of its first two Terex® FDC 18K6 empty container handler units to Hipercon Terminais de Carga, Santos Port, Brazil, one of the leading logistics companies. With several hundred units in operation worldwide, the FDC 18K6 is considered to be one of the most reliable and trusted 6-high container handlers currently available. Equipped with a 200 HP engine, hydrodynamic transmission and hydraulic side spreader for 20 and 40-ft containers, the FDC 18K6 is one of the most popular, time proven models in its category. “We chose this model for offering the right combination of reliability, compact size, high-speed operation and low maintenance costs”, said Renato Nunes dos Reis, General Manager, Hipercon. In partnership with Equiport, Terex Cranes has sold over 350 reach stacker units to over 70 customers in 14 ports throughout Brazil. “For Terex, this delivery premier is a good example of just how well our offering is suited to the needs of the Brazilian customers. We are satisfied to see the success of our empty container handlers after we have been very successful with our reach stackers in the Brazilian market,” said Thomas Ostermann, Vice President, Terex Cranes & Managing Director, Port Equipment.
