Hyster® port and terminal solutions at Intermodal Africa 2018

14th November 2018

From 27th – 29th November 2018, Hyster Europe will be attending the 20th Intermodal Africa event in Accra, Ghana to showcase 360 degree solutions for container ports and terminal operations.

During the exhibition, visitors have the opportunity to visit the Hyster® team at Stand 1 to find out more about the range of robust all-round Hyster® solutions available for intermodal operations, from empty container handlers and ReachStackers, to forklift trucks and warehouse equipment. Plus, solutions beyond trucks, such as weighing systems and Hyster Tracker telematics.

Latest Hyster® innovations

Some of the recent Hyster® products that delegates can learn about include:


  • Hyster® Empty Container Handler for Double Handling – a new series of Hyster® trucks, with 4 single handlers lifting up to 8 high (8’6”) and 5 double handlers lifting up to 9 high (8’6”) available.

The double-handling capabilities offer significant productivity advantages. For example, the H11XM-ECD9 enables the operator to handle two 40ft reefer containers with ease, even when both refrigerator units are positioned at the same side, which would normally cause an offset load.


  • Hyster® ReachStacker for second rail handling – the new elevating cabin option for the Hyster® RS46 ReachStacker offers direct visibility of second rail containers.

This solution optimises visibility of a container on the second rail, even when there is a high cube container on a railcar in the first rail position. The new moveable cab is raised and lowered on a hinged arm and provides greater efficiency while helping to reduce damage. With the robust Hyster® cabin design, operators also benefit from a comfortable environment.


  • Updated 8-16T Hyster® Lift Truck – the latest heavy-duty models provide optimal visibility, strength and reliability, with a completely new mast and carriage.

The innovative mast design offers added strength, increasing the residual capacity on each truck. There is now more space between mast channels giving enhanced visibility of the attachment. The more open design results in less weight on the carriage and reduces ‘lost’ load centres by getting the load closer to the truck. The new range of 2-stage masts, and extended range of pin or hook type carriages, are available on the H8-12XM-6, H13-16XM-6 and H10XM-12 models.


  • Hyster® RS45 ReachStacker for Everyday Handling – The Hyster® RS45-27CH and RS45-31CH ReachStackers are an addition to the existing Hyster® RS46 ReachStacker range, exclusively available to customers in the Middle East and Africa with Stage IIIA/Tier3 emissions regulations. Built using proven Hyster® components for maximum dependability these trucks are especially designed for excellent productivity in the first, second and third rows.

These trucks offer the same quality components, durability and toughness as any Hyster® Big Truck, alongside intelligent Hyster® design to deliver lower fuel consumption and longer tyre life
