Pacific National has contracted Adaptalift Hyster to supply and maintain a fleet of reach stackers and container handlers at their Melbourne freight terminal. The contract is the single largest Big Truck fleet management contract ever awarded within Australia.

As market leaders in Big Trucks within Australia, Adaptalift Hyster looks forward to an ongoing partnership with Pacific National for many years to come, says Peter Wortley, Adaptalift’s GM Big Trucks.

One of Australia’s largest private rail freight businesses, Pacific National specialises in strategic rail services connecting port to destination for coal, bulk haulage and steel as well as specialised freight for valuable cargo. Pacific National’s transnational operations provide precise management and predictability for coal, steel or bulk logistics, with the company taking pride in being an integral part of their customers’ supply chain, completing the logistics cycle from beginning to end.

Adaptalift Hyster will supply reach stackers in a combination of standard top lift and intermodal handlers along with a number of laden container handlers and three dedicated 18 tonne steel handling lift trucks to work in the Melbourne freight terminal. Additionally, Adaptalift and Pacific National have collaborated on advances in telemetry container management, video analytics and safety, which will set the benchmark for the industry.

Adaptalift and Pacific National’s shared focus of safety and technology has driven advances in both capability and versatility, providing a safer, more ergonomic and ultimately a more productive environment for the operator and the business. This partnership has resulted in the development of a multi-function, consolidated in-vehicle terminal, supporting advanced safety and recording systems.

Both Adaptalift and Pacific National hope to introduce many more innovations across various facets of container handling technologies, including machine vision, hazard detection and incident analysis.
