Gerard Verdam, our former head of Engineering & Production, retired after 38 years with the company – a period during which he saw, and initiated, many changes. Gerard joined Terberg in 1977 as head of the mechanical workshop. He soon modernised the workshop and developed machines to increase efficiency. Terberg’s management noticed his ingenuity and soon transferred him to the Development department. In the evenings he studied for a degree in mechanical engineering. After six years, Gerard was promoted to department head and later joined the management team.

Terberg RT and YT tractors have found their way into steelworks where their robustness and reliability are highly valued. They are well suited to 24/7 operations in these demanding industrial environments. Our range includes the RT403 which is designed for the heaviest applications, up to a maximum GCW of 375 tonnes.

The Port of Miami - Photo: mariakraynova /


Miami welcomes Terberg Tractors Americas Once we had decided to set up a subsidiary in the Americas, the big question was where to base it. Just as with our other regional offices (e.g. the Middle East office based in Dubai) this office would have to have good connections by air. After an analysis of the locations of our current and prospective customers and distributors we chose Miami as our base. The city has excellent connections to both North and South America and provides a good business environment. When looking for an office and business services providers we received a lot of help from the Beacon Council (Miami-Dade County’s official business development partnership) and its members. In December 2014, at the Key ceremony to recognise businesses which have contributed to the local economy, Christabelle Arguello and Ron van Arkel accepted the “key” on behalf of Terberg Tractors Americas. We are certain that Miami is an excellent base for our new subsidiary and we are looking forward to increasing Terberg’s presence in the Americas.





The close contact between both companies has resulted in an order for 5 Terberg YT182 tractors for Palermo in Baranquilla, Colombia. Palermo Sociedad Portuaria is a new multipurpose terminal located in the north of Colombia on the Magdalena River. It combines an excellent geographical location with a broad range of services. Colombia is a new market for Terberg. A combination of fast delivery time, being able to adapt to the special hydraulic requirements, for the special tipping trailers, and the tractor lay out and ergonomics, have


been deciding factors for the customer to place the order with Terberg.

“I have been with Terberg Nordlift from the start” In 2007 Terberg acquired Nordlift, then our distributor in Germany. Terberg Nordlift has since expanded from a staff of 8 to 40 and is now the clear market leader in shunting tractors in Germany. The company is based in Hamburg, Germany’s second-largest city, in the north of the country. Both Hamburg and Lübeck nearby have major ports.

Premises Terberg Nordlift in Hamburg

In our markets, the RT tractors are particularly in demand. About half of them are used for RoRo operations in ports and the rest in heavy industry. We have customers in the paper, steel and wind turbine industry, but also in civil engineering. That’s because RT tractors, with their small turning circle and swivelling seat, work really well in tunnels. Of course, we also sell all other models, and Body Carriers, for use with swap bodies, are commonly used here and in the surrounding countries. Swap bodies are much lighter than ISO containers and their dimensions are optimised for European pallet sizes. Another great advantage is that body carriers and trucks with adjustable suspension can easily load and unload them, without the need for large, expensive container handling equipment.

BMW/SCHERM GERMANY BMW is renowned for designing and producing high-quality cars offering drivers and their passengers outstanding performance and comfort. SCHERM Gruppe, a leading international systems service provider, transports automotive components used at BMW’s plant in Munich. As both companies aim to reduce their environmental impact they are always looking for opportunities to reduce carbon emissions. Hence SCHERM invested in a Terberg YT202-EV fully electric tractor to transport components between their warehouse and the BMW plant. The two-kilometre route is on public roads and the tractor will make eight round trips every day. Compared with a vehicle with a diesel engine this will reduce CO2 emissions by almost 12 tonnes annually. Noise and particulate emissions will also be greatly reduced. Hermann Bohrer, manager of the BMW Group Munich plant: “This fully electric truck shows that we are always working on innovative solutions and also set ourselves challenges in logistics. Hence we are looking forward to cooperating with SCHERM Gruppe.” Rainer Zoellner, e-truck project leader at SCHERM Gruppe: “After a long search we have now found an e-mobility solution for transport operations. We are certain that, together with the BMW Group, we will gain valuable experience from this pilot project.”





Two transport modes, one tractor


Gestamp GERMANY Gestamp is an international group specialising in the design, development and manufacture of metal automotive components and has almost 130 production plants. The company’s plant is located in Bielefeld and has approximately 1,400 employees and produces pressed steel parts for VW, BMW and Daimler. Gestamp recently purchased a RR222 4x2 tractor for this plant. The unit is mostly used for handling wagons (rail mode) and Seacom roll trailers (road mode) carrying coils of steel, and also for shunting conventional trailers. In rail mode (20% of operations) the tractor can handle around 800 tonnes of wagons and in road mode it handles trailers with payloads up to 70 tonnes.




New solutions and applications Terberg DTS closely monitors developments in the distribution sector in the UK. Due to new inspection regimes and changes in trailer designs, drivers at distribution centres now frequently have to climb in and out of the cabs. This inspired us to develop the DT183LE low entry distribution tractor which you may have read about in last year’s Terberg Magazine. The first units have now entered service and are helping fleet operators to reduce driver fatigue and risk of injury, while also improving efficiency.

After the introduction of the vehicle we were pleased to discover that it is also an attractive solution for aircraft refuelling and catering applications. Furthermore, we have received inquiries from markets which are currently using low entry tractors intended for highway applications and where our DT183LE might be a better choice. We are very excited that the results of our hard work are so well received. The interest in our low entry tractor also proves, again, that listening to our customers pays off! The low entry design, and the low noise and vibration level in the cab, significantly improve the driver’s workplace conditions and also promote efficiency. 30

The driver can enter or leave the cab on the right or the left.

Fifth wheel lifting capacity up to 36 tonnes.

Large side access steps with anti-slip surface integrated in chassis. The upper step can be folded back.

The cab floor is only approx. 0.5 m above the ground.

Amongst the biggest in the world Our joint venture with Sime Darby Industrial in Pasir Gudang produces terminal tractors for the Asia Pacific region. The YT320 (6x4) tractor is a very popular product in TTM’s markets where they are mostly used for Double Stack Trailer (DST) operation.


Clark Equipment, Terberg’s Australian distributor, recently supplied 10 YT220 tractors in a special version for onroad use. These units are customised to meet the strict Australian requirements for road vehicles, including ADR compliance. Hence they are fitted with anti-lock braking and mechanical steering and can reach speeds up to 80 km/h.





Terberg fleet increases rapidly at PSA Singapore PSA Singapore is a major operator of YT320 units and other Terberg vehicles. They currently have a fleet of 80 YT320 tractors which can handle a GCW of 110 tonnes and have proven to meet PSA’s strict demands. TTM recently delivered another 190 YT220MKII tractors to PSA whose fleet now consists of 567 of our tractors – the largest Terberg fleet in the world. All these tractors were produced at TTM’s plant in Malaysia. The PSA terminals in Singapore have a total of 57 berths and handle well over 33 million TEU every year. The large volumes passing through the port are the result of the city’s role as a hub between East and West and the port’s capacity is scheduled to increase to 50 million TEU per year. Singapore is connected to 600 ports, with daily sailings to every major port in the world. PSA was voted Best Container Terminal (Asia) for the 25th time at the 2014 Asian Freight & Supply Chain Awards and received the Port Operator Award at the Lloyd’s List Asia Awards for the 13th time in 2014. Tourism is also important and one of PSA’s terminals is adjacent to the Sentosa Island holiday resort.

Trieste Marine Terminal ITALY The strategic geographical position of Trieste, in the northern part of the Adriatic Sea, and a water depth of 18 metres, make Trieste Marine Terminal the perfect gateway for cargo in this region. The terminal also benefits from excellent rail connections and is located in a Free Port zone. In July 2015 the monthly throughput reached a record of 47,044 TEU. Trieste Marine Terminal has been using Terberg equipment for around ten years and recently purchased 15 YT182 tractors from our Italian distributor Manuport and their partner Vecar. The tractors are fitted with dedicated Michelin X-terminal tyres and LED headlights to give drivers a better view and make the units stand out more in the dark. Vecar will undertake all maintenance and repairs. 42

Sanofi Pasteur FRANCE Sanofi Pasteur is the largest human vaccine company in the world. The company needed a vehicle for their site close to Lyon to transfer products between production and storage buildings. As the area is very dense, with many delivery locations, it was important to have a highly manoeuvrable vehicle which gave the driver a clear view of the area around the vehicle. Low fuel consumption and easy maintenance were also important factors. After a careful consideration of the options, Sanofi Pasteur selected a YT182 with a 4,750 mm wheelbase combined with a box body from a local supplier. They commented that the tractor contributes to safety on the site and has a low noise level, and also praised the effective cooperation between Terberg distributor Francetruck and the body builder.
