Konecranes reach stackers delivered to Sri Trang Logistic in Thailand
Sri Trang Logistic is a new Konecranes customer in the ever-growing region of south-east Asia. In June they took delivery of their order of 4 reach stackers.
Sri Trang Logistic group is a fast-growing logistics provider. It has been a container seaport operator in Kantang, Trang Province, for almost a decade. Recently it has officially begun its railway container yard operation in Thung Song, Nakon Sri Thamarat.
The four reach stackers, of model SMV 4531 TC5, will begin working at the two ports in Kantang and Thung Song and will primarily assist with container lifting. Rubber is typically transported in baled sheets, which are then containerized or as liquid latex transported in containerized tanks.
Jeffrey Foo, Regional Sales Manager says, “Sri Trang is a comprehensive player in the logistic market, and we are thrilled that our machines will further enhance their trade and logistical strength in the region. Our new state of the art C-model reach stacker backed with our after sales support proved to offer best values for this prestige customer”
Further, Sri Trang has opted for factory-fitted TRUCONNECT® systems on all machines, as more and more customers acknowledge that remote oversight of usage and maintenance issues can be the difference between productive machines and downtime.
Mr. Apichart Parnitchkul, CEO of Sri Trang Logistic concludes, “If you produce and transport some of the highest volumes of natural rubber in the world, you need best-in-class machines and partners to do that successfully and consistently”. Mr. Atthapon Mebusaya, Maintenance and Procurement Manager and Mr. Tossaporn Mebusaya, Operation Development and Corporate Strategy Manager added: “one of our main criteria to choose the supplier was the service capabilities and we are very confident with Konecranes after sales set-up”.
Sri Trang Logistic held their grand opening of the terminal today on the 13th of July in Thongong ICD, Nakornsithamarat province south of Thailand, where the 4 reach stackers also were proudly presented.
