The first Sennebogen 830 Trailer E-series material handler has been rolled out in Australia as part of a partnership between the Pedersen Group and Sennebogen.
The Pederson Group, part of the LINX Cargo Care Group, is a logistics infrastructure and solutions provider with 4000 employees around Australia and New Zealand.
It works with forestry organisations, helping process more than 8.3 million tonnes of fibre per year.
By collaborating with the Sennebogen Group, the Pedersen Group aims to create harmonious and efficient systems with higher efficiency levels and reduced consumption.
The Sennebogen 830 Trailer E-series weighs 43.5 tonnes and is 14 metres long, able to load its own trailer with freshly cut wood.

It includes a built-in automated idling and stop system to reduce consumption when the machine is not in use. Additionally, it features an EcoMode, can reduce specific fuel consumption, depending on the difficulty of the task. Fan units also only run when necessary to further reduce energy consumption.
Loading and driving operations are powered by a 168-kilowatt engine, providing enough tractive force to move up to 60-tonne log loading trailers.
At the Pederson Group log yard in Maryvale, the machine and trailer can cover a loaded distance of 1.5 kilometres within a 10 to 15-minute cycle.
Pedersen Group CEO, Gavin Hudson, said in order to make its services as efficient as possible, the company needs to maximise the potential savings in every single area of its processes.
“In addition to delivering more for our customers, we’re also improving our environmental footprint as this material handler can reduce fuel consumption levels by up to 25 per cent,” Hudson said.
“Investing in our onsite equipment maximises savings in every single area of our processes, which ultimately means our customers receive better cost utilisation and operational performance.”
