APM Terminals has invested in 12 new so-called straddle carriers for the company's container terminal in the Port of Gothenburg. The vehicles can handle four stacked containers each while also reducing CO2 emissions by more than 30 percent compared to the older vehicles, says APM Terminals in a statement.

In addition to reducing CO2 emissions, the new vehicles will also increase storage capacity as well as productivity, as the vehicles can lift two twenty-foot containers (teu) simultaneously. With the delivery of the last two units this week, 38 older vehicles will be phased out.
