Belgian logistics company Zuidnatie orders Konecranes Generation 6 mobile harbor crane to raise capacity, lower emissions
In Q2 2023, Belgian logistics and transportation company Zuidnatie NV ordered their first Generation 6 Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Crane for operations in Antwerp, as they continue to build more capacity while lowering emissions and improving energy efficiency. With delivery in Q3, the crane will be assembled on site for commissioning and handover in Q4 2023.
As their business grows and the market demands more eco-efficiency throughout the supply chain, Zuidnatie ordered a Generation 6 Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Crane as an easily adaptable, high-performance hybrid solution at Antwerp, one of Europe’s largest ports for handling both general cargo and containers.
“We’ve been using Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Cranes in logistics for over 25 years. As their mobile harbor cranes are also assembled at our site for delivery to other Konecranes customers, we’ve had the chance to see the new crane up close and gain deeper insight into its technology. This convinced us that the Generation 6 would be the right solution for our own operations,” says Stephanie Feys, CEO of Zuidnatie.
“This new crane will be the thirteenth Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Crane for Zuidnatie. The order underlines the strength of our long and special business partnership and confirms Zuidnatie’s confidence in Konecranes,” says Alexandros Stogianidis, Regional Sales Director Benelux, Port Solutions, Konecranes.
