Hyster to supply 10 battery-electric terminal tractors to APM Terminals

Hyster Company will provide APM Terminals with 10 battery-powered terminal tractors for their location at the Port of Mobile in Alabama. The electric terminal tractors, which are scheduled to be delivered in 2024, are part of a $60-million investment in port equipment electrification pilots by APM Terminals.

The electric terminal tractors are designed to provide a zero-emission option to help the terminal, and other port and distribution operations, achieve clean energy targets while maintaining diesel-like performance levels. Each tractor will be powered by a 260 kWh lithium-ion battery, which is expected to provide about 9.5 hours of continuous run time on a full charge.

The terminal tractors will operate as a gang, serving a ship-to-shore crane at APM Terminals Mobile, a world-class, high productivity terminal connecting sea, road and rail from the US Gulf Coast.

As the crane unloads containers from the ship, the tractors will transport laden and unladen containers between the crane and the yard. Each tractor has a 182,000-pound gross combined weight rating.

The electric terminal tractors, which Hyster has worked with Capacity Trucks to develop and will be built in Texas, represent one of several clean power-focused port equipment projects in which the company is engaged.
