Federal Marine Terminals making major investment in 2016

Federal Marine Terminals is making a major investment of $3.7 million in 2016. These expenditures include the procurement of a new $1.7 million crane for its Cleveland terminal, 11 heavy-capacity forklifts for Burns Harbor, Indiana; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Cleveland, Ohio and Hamilton, Ontario as well as other equipment and gear to improve operations. Not only do the new forklifts feature Hyster wireless monitoring systems to ensure safety and efficiency, they are equipped with Tier 4 Final engines and urea-based Selective Catalytic Reduction systems to reduce nitrogen oxides and particulate matter emissions by as much as 90 percent compared to the previous model.
