In March 2014, Konecranes received another order for RTGs and reach stackers from transportation supplier CSX Intermodal Terminals, Inc. in the U.S. Four Konecranes RTGs will be delivered to two CSX Intermodal Terminals’ facilities in Chicago, Illinois, and two reach stackers to Charleston, South Carolina. All equipment will be delivered before March, 2015. The order has been included in Konecranes’ order intake for the first quarter 2014.


CSX Intermodal Terminals, Inc., a subsidiary of CSX Corporation in Jacksonville, Fla., is one of the nation's leading intermodal terminal operators, providing rail-to-truck and truck-to-rail transloading services. The company operates more than 30 terminals across the eastern United States and Canada.


“Konecranes provides high quality equipment uniquely suited to support a changing U.S. intermodal rail terminal operation,” says Wilby Whitt, President, CSX Intermodal Terminals, Inc.


“We are very pleased to support CSX Intermodal Terminals in its growth process. Konecranes’ extensive service network across the North America provides an excellent base for intermodal activities, where local support is a must,” said Jussi Suhonen, Sales Director, Port Cranes, Konecranes.


Konecranes’ RTGs have and will be used for stacking and moving containers from rail to truck and vice versa. The cranes are equipped with Konecranes Active Load Control for the most efficient Anti-Sway and Fine-Positioning.
