Konecranes Launches New Container Crane

Konecranes introduces its first product especially developed for the emerging markets – the BOXHUNTER container handling crane.

The product is a completely new type of RTG that will give the company access to a new market segment.

The launch is the first step in one of Konecranes’ main strategies – developing new mid-priced products especially for the emerging markets.

The BOXHUNTER, launched at the TOC Container Supply Chain Asia conference in Singapore, is the outcome of an intense product development effort that reinvented the design of today’s Rubber Tired Gantry (RTG) cranes.

Konecranes Group’s President and CEO Pekka Lundmark is one of the key speakers at the conference.

We did this by focusing on the operator and the user interface that we provide the operator with,” says Mika Mahlberg, Konecranes’ Vice President, Port Cranes.

The idea that we hit on was to turn things on their head, literally, and bring the operator down to the center of things in terms of stacking and moving containers: ground level.”
