Today, Port of Trelleborg is Scandinavia’s largest RoRo port and an intermodal hub in traffic to and from Europe. From here you can sail to Rostock, Travemünde, Swinoujscie and Klaipeda. The port’s eight RoRo locations with different ramp systems and track connections provide the conditions for efficient and rational handling. A large part of Sweden’s total exports/imports pass through Port of Trelleborg.
“We have an average flow of 2,400 trucks every day, 365 days a year,” says Ulf Sonesson, Landlord Manager at Port of Trelleborg. “Of course, this means it is vital that we have a custom fleet of terminal tractors that can handle our goods flow in the best possible way. But the icing on the cake is that the port is now moving south and we are extending Sweden by 545 metres,” says Ulf. “However, while the work is in progress, operations must flow as usual without disruption or delays. The laytime for the ships is getting shorter while the demand for smooth port logistics is increasing. If we cannot unload and load the ships quickly enough, it costs the shipping companies a lot of money. It is then absolutely vital that we have both personnel and a vehicle fleet that can deliver without disruption,” concludes Ulf.
" We have our own service workshop that manages the maintenance of all our vehicles and machines,” says Jonas Pedersen, Production Manager at Port of Trelleborg. “If we take the terminal tractors as an example, they are serviced regularly every 500 operating hours, which means on average about 6 times a year. This is a must for the machines to be able to perform continuously every day all year round and avoid unnecessary production loss. We also have access to N. C. Nielsen’s own specialist who is with us several days a week. The problems we cannot solve with his help are not problems,” Jonas smiles.
New technology is continuously being used to further improve the terminal tractors and to expand TERBERG’s leading position in user-friendliness, ergonomics and safety. Keep it simple and safe is a fundamental TERBERG principle in terms of construction, design and technology.
“We have TERBERG models with a towing capacity (GCW) of 75 to 200 tons and up to 45 tons on the turntable today,” says Per Löthner, Area Manager Sweden at N.C. Nielsen AB. “We are constantly developing unique solutions to meet our customers’ needs, both now and in the future.” Being able to follow a customer, adapt to their needs and grow together over time is exactly the way we want to work,” says Per. “If it is good for the customer, it is good for us,” concludes Per.
