ITC Orders Seven Konecranes RMG Cranes for Melbourne Terminal

Intermodal Terminal Company partners with Konecranes to enhance Australia’s rail freight infrastructure.


Intermodal Terminal Company (ITC) has placed an order for seven Konecranes Rail Mounted Gantry (RMG) cranes intended for its forthcoming Somerton terminal situated in the northern region of Melbourne, Australia.

The delivery, scheduled to occur between April and September 2025, encompasses not only the seven Konecranes RMGs but also seven Konecranes Remote Operating Stations (ROSs).

Wholly owned and supported by Aware Super, a prominent superannuation fund in Australia managing assets worth $170 billion on behalf of approximately 1.1 million members, ITC endeavors to establish a nationwide network of terminals, with the initial endeavor being the development of the $400 million Somerton Intermodal Terminal (SIT).

ITC’s strategic vision is to leverage Australia’s transition towards rail freight over road transport, aiming to enhance community welfare, environmental sustainability, and supply chain efficiency.

The forthcoming terminal will comprise an Inner Terminal, outfitted with four RMGs, and an Outer Terminal, furnished with three RMGs. Correspondingly, the Konecranes ROSs will be allocated between the terminals according to this configuration.

“ITC opted for Konecranes as its preferred provider due to the company’s reputation for reliability in equipment provision and servicing for the forthcoming Melbourne intermodal terminal. This marks the inception of a robust partnership, with Konecranes ideally positioned to support ITC’s prospective expansion plans for intermodal terminals nationwide,” stated Klaus Woeste, Konecranes Regional Sales and Service Director Oceania.

Furthermore, discussions are underway between Konecranes and ITC regarding a service agreement tailored for the new Melbourne intermodal terminal, aiming to ensure operational continuity and maintenance efficiency.
