News | 01/28/2019 Ten Years of Market-Leadership for Liebherr Mobile Harbour Cranes

Liebherr mobile harbour cranes dominate the MHC sector with an approximate market share of up to 65%. The great demand for the world's largest MHC, the LHM 800, is rising steadily - Six sales in 2018 confirm the trend. Sales regions that had performed less well in recent years were newly developed and new key accounts were won.

The LHM 420 was again one of the most sought-after devices in 2018.

“Demand for our state-of-the-art handling solution was very stable at a high level duringthe course of the year. In addition, we have succeeded in reviving countries and even entire regions that have shown almost no turnover development in recent years. A record year in the UK and an impressive result in Africa are two positive examples. In addition, we have continued our success story with the LHM 800, strengthened our existing customer relationships and gained new important accounts. At this point I would like to emphasise very clearly that all this could only be achieved through teamwork across all departments and branches worldwide,” summarises Andreas Müller, Sales Director for Liebherr mobile harbour cranes.


“Despite unstable political and economic conditions, some of which are difficult to predict, the outlook for 2019 is positive. The existing order backlog is promising and indicates that the Liebherr mobile harbour crane will continue on its successful course. We would like to thank all our customers for the trust they have placed in us. We will work hard as a team to meet their expectations,” says Leopold Berthold, Managing Director Sales for Liebherr Maritime Cranes.
