Hiab, the business area providing load handling solutions within Cargotec, has secured a significant order for 157 hooklifts from MAN Nutzfahrzeuge AG. The hooklifts will be installed onto MAN trucks and supplied to the German Defense Forces. The delivery of the hooklifts will start immediately and continue into 2012. The order value amounts to approximately 8 million euros.
The protected high mobility trucks are designed for use by the military in extreme operating conditions and when equipped with MULTILIFT hooklifts are capable of loading, transporting and unloading both containers and military flatracks. The hooklifts will also be utilised to transport fully armoured modules designed for the safe carriage of soldiers in hazardous regions.
