August 10, 2017 | News
It was announced at the TOC Europe trade fair that Terberg's new automated yard tractor, the AutoTUGTM, will also be available from Konecranes as part of their comprehensive port automation packages.
This partnership is interesting for all potential AutoTUG customers who also want to use Konecranes equipment or the TEAMS ECS software.
This provides Konecranes customers with an alternative to AGVs and automated straddle carriers when implementing large automation projects. The partnership is supplementary to distribution through Terberg's subsidiaries and distributors.
For customers that have other requirements related to ECS, alternative solutions will be made available by Terberg.
