Hutchison Ports Thailand Receives 20 New Terminal Tractors

Hutchison Ports Thailand Receives 20 New Terminal Tractors
Danny Gill

Hutchison Ports Thailand (HPT), the largest terminal operator in Thailand, recently took delivery the first lot of twenty (20) new terminal tractor heads and chassis that will be utilized on Terminal D at Laem Chabang Port, and eventually there will be more than 100 tractor heads and chassis in total.

Terminal D is a new built terminal that when completed will be able to handle some of the world’s largest mega vessels currently in operation. Upon full completion of all phases of Terminal D, a total of 17 quay cranes and 43 rubber tyred gantry cranes using remote control technology will be deployed. Combined, the terminal will have a 1700 metre quay equipped with some of the latest technology, facilities, and largest equipment currently at Laem Chabang Port. The annual throughput capacity at Terminal D is expected to be around 3.4 million TEUs.

In a statement, HPT says that the new terminal embodies much of what they been steadily looking to accomplish over the past 15 years at Laem Chabang Port; increasing their presence, and in turn the sustainability of the Port itself. The investment into Terminal D is the collective manifestation of their work and looks to become a beacon for other terminals around the region to emulate.

This latest investment from HPT into new terminal tractor heads and chassis looks to play an important role at Terminal D, as HPT looks to continue their strong investments with future growth in mind for both the company and their customers in Thailand.
