The Australian Department of Defence have awarded a contract to Mobicon Systems to supply a purpose built Eco Mini Straddle Carrier.
The contract between Mobicon Systems and the ADF will facilitate a boost to Australian industry as the Mini Straddle Carrier Provider is an Australian based operation, and all of their machines are designed, assembled and made on-site at their head office in Brisbane.
Mobicon Managing Director Tom Schults said;
“Working with the ADF is an excellent fit for Mobicon. As the ADF continue to innovate and look for more cost efficient, safe and productive ways to carry out their operations, Mobicon in-turn are committed to providing our customers worldwide with the best designs, services and solutions to meet their container handling needs.
Mobicons are designed to be the most maneuverable, safe and low yard impact container handling systems on the market , ensuring the ADF can use them in day to day operations across a broad range of terrains with no damage to their yard facilities “.
Signing the Contract with The Australian Department of Defence has cemented the reputation of Mobicon Systyems as the leading supplier of Mini Straddle Carriers to Military Departments around the world. In 2008 Mobicon won the contract to supply 13 purpose built Mobicon Mini Straddle Carriers to the American Navy for their Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) project. The first deliveries of the LCS Mobicons have taken place and have been exceeding the container handling needs of the high speed LCS aluminum trimaran craft since.
