Barge Feeder

Inland barge feeder container cranes are specialized equipment designed to facilitate the loading and unloading of shipping containers from barges in inland waterways. These cranes play a vital role in the logistics and transportation industry, particularly in regions where rivers and canals serve as essential transport routes for cargo.

The trolley is typically mounted on rails that run along the boom of a container crane, allowing it to move horizontally. It is equipped with a spreader, which is an adjustable frame that can be raised, lowered, and rotated to securely grasp and release the containers. Our trolleys can also equipped with advanced features like automated control systems, collision detection, and remote monitoring capabilities. This helps safety, efficiency, and overall operational performance.

Core of lifting

The core of lifting container cranes consists of several essential components that work together to facilitate the efficient and safe movement of shipping containers.Components that work together are:
• Trolley
• Spreader
• Boom
• Gantry
• Operator’s cabin
• Safety features

Active load control

Active load control utilizes advanced sensors, actuators, and algorithms to actively monitor and manage the motion of containers during the lifting and transportation process. The systems address these issues by continuously adjusting the movement of the crane and its components to minimize unwanted motion.Key features include:
• Anti-sway systems
• Positioning assistance
• Energy optimization
• Safety improvements

Bogies are the wheeled structures that support the container crane's weight and facilitate its movement along the rails. The primary purpose of a bogie is to distribute the weight of the crane and its load evenly across the wheels. This helps prevent damage to the rails and ensures the stability of the crane during operation.

Container crane cabins are the control centers for the operators who manage the movement and placement of shipping containers at ports and terminals. We gives a lot of attention to the design of container crane cabins focuses on providing a comfortable and safe working environment for the operators.  Some key features include:
• Ergonomic design
• Visibility
• Climate control
• Noise reduction
• Safety features
• Communication equipment

The best assets for the job

Our barge feeder container cranes are made with single or double girders to create a fixed structure that straddle the width of the barge and move along rails parallel to the waterway. We offer high lifting capacity and efficiency in the design of crane structures with less wind surface, high stiffness for shorter operating times, durable paint systems with rounded edges and 8 point mooring anti-sway systems making them suitable for handling large volumes of containers efficiently for many years.

We focus with our new generation of Lagendijk barge feeder container cranes on the ability to reduce congestion at major seaports by handling containers in smaller, regional ports for distribution. This not only streamlines the overall supply chain but also helps to minimize the environmental impact of road transportation.

Let us make an inventory of your local inland container terminal situation in order to provide you with the right solution.
