ILC expands Terex range

January 2017

Integrated Logistics Company has added 31 cranes to its fleet, taking the total number of machines to 2,000 and allowing it to undertake heavy lifting jobs.

In a massive fleet expansion, leading Middle East logistics and crane hire firm Integrated Logistics Company (ILC) has taken delivery of a new Demag CC 3800-1 crawler crane, 20 Terex AC 100/4L all-terrain cranes and 10 Terex Explorer 5600 all-terrain cranes.

The new cranes join a fleet of more than 2,000 machines to be utilised throughout the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region by the Kuwait-headquartered company. The Demag CC 3800-1 lattice boom crawler crane is the first of its kind in the region and will allow ILC to meet heavy-lifting demands. 

“Our growth has been driven by the relentless pursuit of being the best logistics provider in the region,” says Saleh Al Huwaidi, ILC’s CEO.

“To achieve that reputation, it’s vital for ILC to have the best equipment available and work with equipment suppliers who do an outstanding job of supporting us. Since 2005, we have purchased more than 200 Terex and Demag cranes because the machines are built well, and the team at Terex Cranes is responsive to our needs.” 

The 650-tonne CC 3800-1 crawler crane has a maximum load moment of 8.484-m tonnes and features a wide array of safety features, including the award-winning fall protection system. The company ordered the unit with a Superlift structure for increased lifting capabilities.

“We selected the CC 3800-1 because of its ability to outperform larger 750-tonne-class cranes in many applications,” adds Al Huwaidi.

The new AC100/4L and Explorer 5600 all-terrain cranes are being deployed throughout Kuwait, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.

ILC has several ongoing projects that require the mobility and impressive lift capacities of these Terex units.

“These mobile cranes have proven to be a versatility option for our crews with their extremely long booms,” explains Al Huwaidi.

“Our operators also like the IC-1 Plus control system equipped on these machines, which gives them access to real-time calculations to improve the machine’s performance at higher capacity ranges.” 

The newly commissioned cranes join a vast crane line-up which includes two recently purchased 1,200-tonne Terex AC 1000-9 all-terrain cranes, which were also the first and only mobile cranes of this lifting capacity in the region. 

Founded in 2005 in Ahmadi, Kuwait, ILC’s solutions to the logistics industry include general transport services using low-bed trailers, bulk carriers, fuel and container transportation, and tipper trucks; heavy lift services comprising hydraulic crane and heavy lifting services; fuel handling and distribution; among other services.

The company also provides earthmoving equipment, wheel loaders, graders, excavators, scrappers, road rollers, backhoes, material handling equipment, crawler and all-terrain cranes, rough-terrain and tower cranes, forklifts,  power generators, welding machines, air compressors, tower lights, and sludge/water pumps on hire.
