Heavy-duty vehicle lift leader Stertil-Koni announced the latest episode of its popular, customer-focused “We Care” video series incorporates advanced cinematography and editing technology to dramatically showcase a particularly unique customer application of the company’s award-winning lifting systems.
In the latest installment of “We Care,” the customer under the spotlight is Long Beach Container Terminal Corporation (LBCT), a leading provider of transportation and logistics services in and around Long Beach, Calif., the second busiest port in the United States.
According to the lift manufacturer, what makes the video especially compelling is its use of dramatic drone videography, featuring sweeping panoramic views of the Port of Long Beach, with its 3,000 acres of land and 46 acres of water.
The video takes the viewer on a behind-the-scenes look at LBCT and its utilization of Stertil-Koni’s latest super heavy-duty mobile column lifts – the ST 1130 – which have a lifting capacity of 29,000 pounds per column, or 116,000 pounds for a set of four.
LBCT is the first company in North America to utilize a fleet of Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) to take containers from, or to the yard, according to Steril-Koni. The AGVs, which operate in a completely automated area, have a capacity of 70 tons each and work in collaboration with automated stacking cranes that in turn deliver containers to the truckers or out to the yard. And, to keep the AGVs at maximum performance, they need maintenance every 200 hours of running time. This is where another distinction for LBCT comes into play – the use of Stertil-Koni’s ST 1130 mobile column lifts.
The ST 1130 is engineered to deliver an optimal combination of extremely high-capacity lifting along with added productivity, efficiency, and durability. The ST 1130 is engineered to lift unique container handling vehicles – and many other big vehicles.
