Handling equipment that meets specific requirements of ports

Port logistics requires the daily handling of heavy or bulky loads. To ensure the safety of the operators, the equipment used must provide a high degree of precision and safety, and the ability to perform multiple tasks.

At the service of the most demanding professionals, Manitou knows precisely the problems of port infrastructures related to the handling, moving, transporting, loading/unloading of loads that can weigh several tons. This perfect knowledge allows us to provide ports with solutions adapted to their activities.

Among our ranges, several machines lend themselves to the needs of port equipment logistics managers, including truck-mounted forklifts, masted forklifts, rotary telescopic handlers, aerial work platforms and several warehouse equipment (pallet trucks, stackers).

Offering different characteristics, Manitou machines facilitate the daily handling operations and logistics actions: loading/unloading of merchant ships, storage in containers, transport of materials, but also handling dangerous and flammable products...

With Manitou brand equipment, port handling companies and their dockworkers can intervene safely on site. The performance of the machines simplifies their daily work and ensures high precision of movement, whether on the quays or in the holds of merchant ships.

Our range of telehandlers and aerial work platforms also offer great versatility of use. In addition, our telescopic handlers are considered an "equipped tool holder" for accessories, that you can easily change out the function of the machine in a few minutes. All you have to do is replace the accessory, without having to stop the engine.
