Intermodal boost for Southampton

Freightliner is installing two new RMGs at its near-dock "Maritime" terminal

Following recent investments by Freightliner Ltd in new Liebherr RMGs in both Birmingham and Manchester (two each), two more Liebherr RMGs will be delivered shortly to Freightliner's "Maritime" depot in the Port of Southampton. They will replace the two existing Stothert & Pitt cranes. These are aging and relatively small cranes, with a 0-5-2 gauge and limited lifting height.

The new Liehberr cranes span 0-10-4 (0m-42m-21m) and have a much higher lift height (16.9m). Like the S&P cranes, they have a slewing trolley to accommodate the "herring bone" pattern of the interchange with straddle carriers from Southampton Container Terminal.

It is envisaged that the cranes will eventually increase lift capacity by up to 80%, although the overall capacity will be increased in stages. A full report is published in the June edition of WorldCargo News.
