The full range of Hyster materials handling equipment, from pallet trucks to container handlers, plays a key role in many port centric operations. As the only full line supplier providing a complete solution to transfer goods from ship to store, Hyster is exhibiting at TOC Middle East 2015, from 8-9 December, in Dubai.

“The handling needs at ports, terminals and port centric warehouses in the hinterland require materials handling equipment of all sizes and types, at various stages of the supply chain, from ship to shore to the store and onto the shop floor” explains Kate Pointeau, Brand Manager, Hyster.

The complete Hyster range includes ReachStackers, container handlers, high lift capacity (up to 48 tonnes) forklift trucks, Fortens® IC forklift trucks from 2-9 tonne lift capacity, electric forklift trucks and a variety of warehouse equipment.

"Hyster brings reliability, strength, low cost of operation and energy efficiency to every application," says Kate. "These principles of design run across our full line offering allowing one supplier across a port and hinterland."

From Ship to Shore to Store

Hyster is a global supplier of ReachStackers, Container Handlers, and high capacity forklift trucks, used to transfer and stack shipping containers in ports and terminals, throughout the Middle East. For markets not regulated by EU legislation, the Cummins QSB6.7 Stage IIIA diesel engine is available across the Hyster Big Trucks range.

Once transferred from the container yard to a port centric warehouse, pallet trucks and forklifts of various sizes are used to unload the containers and transfer palletised goods.

"It is essential to match the truck to the application intensity, particularly for container de-stuffing," says Kate.

A core offering of robust IC trucks is available from Hyster, built to deliver reliability and strength for everyday handling. The rugged machines feature uncomplicated electronics for straight-forward servicing. Also available from Hyster are IC trucks tailored for specific and more demanding applications, with more advanced transmissions.

The Inside Story

To move goods in the warehouse store, Hyster provides order pickers, pallet trucks, VNA (very narrow aisle) equipment and Reach Trucks.

"Hyster equipment helps businesses to achieve greater efficiency and optimise picking and packing operations," Kate says. “We aim to keep businesses moving and have made a significant investment in developing some of the toughest and most reliable warehouse trucks on the market.”

While reliability is fundamental with regards to costs, throughput and driver productivity, other factors contribute to the ultimate goal of reducing the customer’s total cost of ownership, such as energy efficiency and truck performance.

The powerful Hyster® JXN electric forklift range is one of the most energy efficient on the market, helping businesses to reduce carbon footprint and energy bills and get better shift life. With pneumatic and cushion tyre variants, the tough 1.5–5 tonne capacity models excel in indoor or outdoor arduous operations. Such robust design and outstanding traction was previously only expected from IC trucks.

To enhance productivity when transporting, stacking or loading pallets, Hyster pallet and stacker trucks provide high reliability, power and precision with a low cost of operation.

In picking operations, pick speed and reliability are essential. The Hyster low level order picker with scooter like control is designed to get the best performance from individual pickers, ensuring loads are placed at the optimum height for the operation with maximum machine reliability. At height, pickers gain maximum pick face access using the Hyster K series of rising cab order pickers, with fast simultaneous lift and horizontal movement (using rails or wire guidance).

Maximising space with very narrow aisles and tall racking, the Hyster VNA truck helps operators efficiently retrieve pallets in high intensity operations up to 17m. Delivering one of the quickest VNA transits in the industry, the horizontal movement intelligently combines with vertical movements, and the patented QUAD form mast design provides rigidity and torsional strength, with proven reliability.

For reach truck users, Hyster offers travel speeds of up to 14 km per hour and a lift speed of 0.8 metres per second, up to 12.5 metres.

Residual capacity is maintained to greater heights thanks to the patented channel mast design and visibility is enhanced through reduced total channel width.

Tailored Solutions

“To support the decision making process and help specify the right mix of trucks, we can use 3D warehouse simulation software to demonstrate how Hyster products will work in the application before they are specified or implemented,” Kate explains.

Once in operation, the fleet can be managed effectively with the Hyster Tracker, a Wireless Access Monitoring System that helps keep forklift trucks running for even longer and even more productively.

To support the efficient flow of goods through busy port and terminal operations, Hyster also offers a range of camera and sensor solutions for reachstackers and counterbalance trucks. They provide the driver with a sharp view of important locations inside and outside the driver’s field of vision.

The weather-proof active signaling system that pairs radar sensing with a camera system, is designed to detect stationary and moving objects in zones potentially obscured from the operator’s view. It also audibly warns the operator when an object is detected.

Forklift camera solutions also help to enhance productivity, providing the operator with a better view of the fork position, load and surroundings -even in low light. Positioned within the operator’s natural field of vision, it also eases the strain, enabling the operator to work more quickly, efficiently and comfortably.

Various seat options are available to suit different requirements, including mechanical or air suspension, fabric or vinyl covers, 3-point seat belt, heating, high backrests and headrests, providing a comfortable environment for the operator.

Hyster products and services can also be tailored, as required, to the most specific and demanding environments such as explosion proofing and where attachments are required.
