Zuidnatie selected for Heavy Lift Awards

Zuidnatie has been nominated for the Heavy Lift Awards in the category ‘Port/Terminal Operator of the Year’. This makes Zuidnatie the only terminal operator in Europe to be selected.

The award is presented to a port authority or terminal operator that has mainly proven its capabilities in the field of loading and unloading heavy cargo. The jury scored the participating companies on the basis of the following points:

  • The safe and efficient handling of large cargoes
  • Investment in new equipment and facilities for the storage and handling of large loads
  • Maintenance of existing facilities
  • Minimising waiting times for customers
  • Investments in technology to optimise loading procedures

We are very pleased to be a finalist. We were able to demonstrate to the jury that our operations of project materials and heavy loads are always safe and efficient. We will of course continue these activities in the future and remain alert and available for new projects, whether or not they are related to our regular partners/line services that call at Zuidnatie as their home terminal.

Our specialised employees with their own Zuidnatie lifting service always ensure safe and high-quality handling of your project and heavy lift pieces. With two of our mobile cranes we can perform tandem lifts of up to 400 tonnes! Moreover, we have our own spmt hydraulic trailer and a 8,000m² heavy lift consolidation centre with a maximum load-bearing capacity of the flooring of up to 150t/m². Our years of experience/know-how and continuous investments in this specialised segment ensure that your cargo can be handled and stored in the best possible conditions at Zuidnatie’s terminals.” – Marc Van Aken, CCO

The award ceremony will take place on 22 September in Hamburg (Hotel Grand Elysée). Other nominees in the category are Port of Everett, Port of Grenaa, T.Parker Host and Logistec Stevedoring. Zuidnatie will also be present during the award show.
