SANY has made a breakthrough delivery of empty container handlers to a terminal in Japan.
SANY has announced the delivery of its first empty container handlers into the Japanese market.
The SANY product line is represented in Japan by WWB Kenki. The first delivery of three SANY SDCY90K6H4 empty containers departed from the SANY Zhuhai Terminal, located in the SANY Marine Heavy Industry facility in Guangdong, and arrived at the Port of Tokyo in June, “marking a new market entry for SANY’s high-end port machinery,” SANY said.
The machines have a tare weight of 38.5t, are powered by Cummins engines and have a lifting capacity of 9t with a maximum stacking height of six 8’6” containers.
"In mid-May, SANY global headquarters organised the regional marketing, R&D, production, and quality assurance departments to complete the customisation for the orders. WWB also organised technical staff to the SANY factory ahead of the shipment for quality inspection to ensure the product quality meets the detail-oriented requirements of Japan.
“Industry insiders believe that being able to enter the Japanese market for the first time demonstrates that SANY port machinery is increasingly recognised in the high-end markets overseas, and if everything goes according to plan, SANY port machinery will appear throughout the ports of Japan in the next three years,” SANY said.
