The Liebherr Reachstacker LRS 545 is busy handling containers at the Duisburg Intermodal Terminal.

Since its opening in the year 2002 the Duisburg Intermodal Terminal (DIT) ranks, with an annual transshipment of approximately 400,000 TEU, among the major service companies within the trimodal transport sector throughout the Lower Rhine region. Currently the Duisburg Intermodal Terminal is operating ten reachstacker from various manufacturers in a three-shift-operation. Since summer 2017 their fleet also includes a Liebherr Reachstacker LRS 545. After a short period of testing, DIT is exceedingly satisfied with overall performance of the Liebherr machine. The drivers commended the reachsteacker due to its outstanding capabilities like an excellent visibility and the high manoeuvrability. As Europe-wide operating logistic company the Contargo GmbH & Co. KG is especially focusing on environmentally compatible and resource-saving work practices. By opting for a more fuel-efficient Liebherr Reachstacker, DIT set a good example being one of the pioneers towards sustainability inside the Contargo group. In sum, excellent arguments for the responsible director Mr. Bernd Putens and its technical employees to opt for a Liebherr Reachstacker.
