Heavy handling Container carriers

Container lift trucks designed with the greatest care

Konecranes have long been a trusted presence at leading container ports and terminals for the quality of their range of container lift trucks.

Our customers have extremely rigorous requirements and we make it a point of honour to fulfil them year after year through the quality of the equipment offered and Aprolis' speedy after-sales support service.

Empty container lift trucks from 8 to 10 tonnes

Empty containers have to be put back into the customer’s operational process as efficiently as possible.

Our empty container lift trucks guarantee a very high operating speed because of their lift/lower speeds, fast travel and the hydraulic load detection system.

The trucks in our range have cabs that are central or raised at the rear and they offer outstanding stability.
