In May 2012, Konecranes received an order for six straddle carriers from Maher Terminals LLC in the US. This is Konecranes’ first straddle carrier delivery to Maher, one of the world’s largest container terminal operators being used by multiple shipping lines and customers.

Maher currently operates a fleet of over 160 straddle carriers.
