The Tanger Med port in the north of Morocco, on the Strait of Gibraltar, has connections to more than 180 ports and 70 countries. The third container terminal TC3 started operations this month and is a joint venture by Contship, Eurogate and Marsa Maroc. It has a capacity of around 1.5 million TEU per year and 800 m of quays.
Mr Echerei from Terberg distributor SPIA Maroc commented: “Contship and Eurogate already use Terberg tractors at their terminals in La Spezia in Italy. Based on the good experience with these tractors and the service and support they receive from SPIA at ports in Morocco they decided to order YT222 and RT223 tractors for TC3. All Tanger Med terminals now use Terberg tractors only.
