Scotland’s container terminal, within the Port of Grangemouth, continues its multi-million pound investment programme with the announcement today (10 May) of the purchase of three new straddle carriers.


The new ESC340 straddle carriers represent another significant investment for the port and will be delivered at the end of the year by port infrastructure equipment specialists Kalmar. The purchase of the new straddle carriers – which are specialist machines for manoeuvring containers within the port – will increase the fleet at the container terminal to 16 and represents the first stage of a phased fleet modernisation initiative which will in time replace the entire fleet.
