Konecranes Lift Trucks gets big order from Euroports Rauma

In late March Euroports Rauma in Finland, ordered 5 forklift trucks, 10 and 16-ton capacity, from Konecranes Lift Trucks. The lift trucks will be delivered together with TRUCONNECT® remote monitoring service in August 2016.

The new machines will build on the port's reputation for expert handling of pulp and paper as well as sawn timber. The port is the largest export port of paper in Finland and has a specialized fleet of equipment for safe and gentle paper handling that maximizes production and minimizes damage to the rolls.

"The TRUCONNECT Remote service means that no matter where the trucks are we have a clear and precise picture of how they are being operated, and how they are running," said Fleet Manager Petri Viinikkala of Euroports Rauma. "We can clearly anticipate any issues to significantly increase uptime and efficiency of our fleet."

Located on the Finnish west coast, the city of Rauma is well known for its paper and maritime industry. Its harbor is the fifth biggest in the country, handling around 6 million tons of cargo every year.
