Toll Group has ordered over 40 Konecranes lift trucks for its Australian operations through Konecranes’ Australian distributor United Forklift and Access Solutions
The order consists of a wide range of FLTs, masted container handlers and reach stackers, all tailored to meet Toll’s strict requirements, the harsh Australian climate and accessibility in remote areas. All the vehicles will be fitted with Konecranes’ Trueconnect remote monitoring and numerous tailored features to help enhance safety, productivity and reliability.
Toll placed the order in Q3 2018 and will start to receive delivery in early 2019 at its sites across Australia. United’s nationwide network of service branches and on road vehicles will provide maintenance and technical support.
Patrik Lundbäck, Konecranes’ Sales Director, Lift Trucks says: “We are very happy and honoured to have received such a large order from Toll.
