Operational efficiency is a major concern to all companies; it’s just as important as cost reduction and operational cost saving. Not only can operational efficiency help cut costs, it can also help save time and boost productivity in many other areas. Thailand is continuously processing growing cargo volumes and for that reason, the need for effective cargo handling is increased as well. Still, proper and effective cargo handling practices are rarely seen.

“Improper handling of multiple product types can negatively affect companies in unexpected ways” Mr. Kittipong Rojanacheewa, Managing Director, Machine Technology Co., Ltd. explained. “Many companies in Thailand are using the wrong type of equipment for lifting cargo, which results in slower work processes, inefficiency, dangerous work environments and environmental damage.”

With years of experience in Thai shipping and logistics, Machine Technology is one of the leading partners of port and terminal operators in Thailand, with services including container freight station and equipment provider. Its team of professionals is ready to support any port and terminal operations nationwide.

The current demand for transporting bulk cargo is growing dramatically, especially for companies operating along the Chao Phraya River, as river transportation is a very cost-effective option. However, cargo handling in ports and terminals along the river can also be a more efficient option with lots of operational benefits should they employ proper handling tools and equipment.

Currently most cargo handling operations in Thailand transfer bulk cargo with excavators, which is an improper use of equipment. It is ineffective and may lead to poor results. “Employment of an excavator in bulk cargo handling incurs high operational risk,” Mr. Rojanacheewa said. “It can be dangerous, uses high levels of energy, can be harmful to the operator and affect the environment.

This practice is no longer allowed for bulk handling in Europe due to the risk of these side effects. We saw the importance of employing best practices and proper equipment to boost operational efficiency, which is why we introduced FUCHS MHL 360 material handlers from Germany to the Thai market. This machine is specially designed for bulk cargo handling.”

Safer work environment

Fuchs specializes in material handling equipment, especially for bulk cargo, such as scrap metal, coal, rice, tapioca pellets, unmilled rice and animal feed. Machine Technology is promoting the Fuchs MHL 360, which offers a number of benefits and is the most cost-effective investment for any company handling bulk cargo. “We brought in the MHL 360 to demonstrate its efficiency and cost-effectiveness, as well as a number of other benefits for operators.

MHL 360 has its boom that can extend to reach and scoop cargo at longer distance, while keeping lifting and handling steady, resulting in greater lifting capacity in each load.”

The swinging motion is smooth and agile. Lower operation and maintenance costs can be enjoyed and it also comes with different types of bucket to suit the type of material being handled.”

Highlights of the Fuchs MHL 360 include:

  • State-of-the-art technology leads to a significant increase in efficiency
  • Higher engine output, combined with Stage IIIB/Tier 4i emission standards compliance results in considerably lower emissions and fuel consumption
  • Specially designed to handle bulk cargo
  • Intelligent cockpit design and user-friendly operator information system
  • Closed swing circuit
  • Hose rupture valves with regeneration on the lift and stick cylinders for fuel-efficient work
  • Improved lift capacity, capable of lifting 3.5 sqm of bulk cargo in each load

Greater Visibility

“With the operator seated in a higher position, operational visibility is improved, which in turn increases operational speed and flexibility. Also, the bucket is specially designed for bulk operation. It can lift 3.5 sqm of bulk cargo each time, increasing lifting capacity and reducing operation time. At the same time, energy consumption is also reduced, resulting in a fast return on investment (ROI). Fuchs is developing its machine to use electricity from the facility, which will further reduce fuel costs, maintenance costs and increase environmental efficiency. MHL 360 operation is also silent and produces less dust during the process, which is beneficial to the community and environment around the port facility.”
