C3 Limited, New Zealand's leading port and material handling service provider, serves a total of 15 ports in the region around New Zealand and Australia. For timber handling in the country's third largest port, Port Chalmers, the decision-makers selected a SENNEBOGEN for the first time. The material handling machine arranges, sorts and loads round timber logs in the extensive warehouse area, enabling optimal utilisation of the capacities. C3 regional manager Graham Wylie praises the large range of the machine in particular. The boom reaches up to 16 meters, which allows the logs to be stacked high. The 830 M also takes up little space, is maneuverable and easy to operate. "The SENNEBOGEN 830 M enables maximum flexibility and productivity, while ensuring optimal safety for all involved - an important factor when sorting timber logs at great heights", praises Graham Wylie.
The SENNEBOGEN 830 is by no means a new addition to the world of material handling in New Zealand. Pacific Materials Handling, the local SENNEBOGEN dealer, has delivered dozens of machine to numerous customers in the region since 2006. Until now, however, other machines have mostly been used for timber handling. The machine is ideal for use in this field thanks to the long boom and good all-round visibility. The strong slewing drive and top travel speed of 20 km/h mean that the machine can act quickly, the elevating maXcab offers optimal overview, outstanding comfort and maximum safety. The driver can use the timber grab to lift the logs precisely to the intended storage position for problem-free logistics. The decision-makers have also come to value the benefits of the SENNEBOGEN 830 M with regard to maintenance and servicing, and competent contact partner Pacific Materials Handling can be on-site quickly should the need arise. As a service provider, we are always looking to optimize the efficiency of the work steps at the port, states Wylie. By investing in this new machine, we have taken a further step in the right direction.
