    Port & Terminal Tires

    Designed for the most severe applications to handle heavy loads at high speeds.

Port Tires & Terminal Tires

Port and terminal machines are expected to work hard in handling freights and goods every day. Ports and terminals require specialized tires to support the various operations and handling of cargo, including loading and unloading of shipping containers, transportation within the port area, and maneuvering in tight spaces. Magna Tyres has terminal tires and port tires for many machines, which are especially designed for the most demanding conditions.

Types of Machines

The machines for ports and terminals need to carry heavy weights, often more than indicated. Container handlers, for instance, must be able to cope with the extreme height reach of their loading masts. This creates a heavy load on the front axle. The rear tires also come under pressure, as they have to ensure vehicle stability. The complexity of all vehicles in this category and their extremely heavy loads require extremely robust tires. We offer tire solutions for the following machines:

  • Boat lift
  • Empty container handler
  • Forklift
  • Ground Support Equipment (GSE)
  • Material handler
  • Mobile excavator
  • Reach stacker
  • Rubber Tyred Gantry (RTG) crane
  • Straddle carrier
  • Telescopic handler
  • Terminal tractor
  • Terminal trailer

Requirements for Port and Terminal Tires

Material handling hubs and harbors are a special environment where wear resistance and cost-effectiveness are the key elements of a tire. To meet the special requirements of port and terminal tires, the Magna Tyres portfolio is especially designed for:

  • Traveling over relatively short distances.
  • Traveling back and forth to load or unload ships as quickly as possible.
  • Making a lot of return trips over rough surfaces.
