COOPER SPECIALISED Handling is to supply four new reach stackers to the iPort Rail terminal at Doncaster. The terminal has had two of the machines since it opened in 2018.
The rail terminal is integrated within the iPort logistics hub, located off junction 3 of the M18 motorway. The new machines will be Sany 4540GS machines with a 7,000mm wheelbase and support jacks to handle fully laden containers from the second rail line at iPort Rail.
Cooper will adapt a workshop at iPort, which was purpose-built to accommodate reach stackers, and fully equip it as a maintenance facility. The workshop will both maintain the machines at the terminal and act as a hub for the region.
