Combilift delivers productivity gains

first_imgThe company says that the Combi-SC has increased flexibility and enabled it to handle 110 teu per week compared with 70 teu with the system used previously.Before the Combi-SC’s arrival a combination of heavy duty forklifts and ramps were used to unload containers from the back of trailers, but according to managing director Alan Nunn this was time consuming and restricted the size and weight of individual items that could be handled.”A lot of the container handling equipment on the market was unsuitable for our premises,” said Alan. “For a busy operation of our size the yard is relatively small for example, so best possible use of available space was a key requirement. When we saw the Combi-SC in action we realised that its extreme manoeuvrability and tight turning circle would be ideal for working in quite narrow confines.”Imorex’s Combi-SC is a three wheel, two-wheel drive diesel powered 35 tonne model, which can lift, transport and set down the 20ft and 40ft containers that are brought in from the port.Combilift’s SC range is also available with heavier lifting capacities and can handle 45ft, high cube, reefer and flat rack containers, offering complete operational flexibility.The company says its low level cab ensures excellent visibility compared with the restricted view of the load when using heavy duty forklifts. It also benefits from a very low unladen weight, which reduces the overall ground pressure even when fully loaded, making it ideal for operation on poor surfaces without the need for costly reinforcement.Getting rid of the ramps – which can be the same length as a trailer – has had multiple benefits. Space in the yard has been freed up to enable containers to be stored back to back, with the SC able to manoeuvre easily around them.Founded in 1973, Imorex has since evolved to become a provider of a wide range of shipping services including car shipping, freight forwarding and warehousing. www.combilift.comwww.imorex.co.uklast_img read more

‘No case too big’: Judge rejects bid to move group action to London

first_imgLawyers have successfully persuaded the High Court to reject an application to move a major group action from the north west to the Rolls Building in London.His Honour Judge Eyre declined to move proceedings that had been commenced in the Business and Property Courts in Liverpool.The case is a class action filed by international firm SPG Law on behalf of around 200,000 individuals suing the Anglo-Australian mining company BHP Billiton for billions of pounds following a dam collapse in Brazil more than three years ago.Exchange Chambers barristers Mark Cawson QC, Louis Browne QC and Carly Sandbach, instructed by SPG Law, together with Jonathan McDonagh of Serle Court Chambers, last week resisted an application from Slaughter and May, acting for BHP Billiton, for the case to be heard in London.The Gazette understands that the judge rejected the defendant’s transfer application after finding neither the value of proceedings nor the complexity required the matter to be transferred to London. He confirmed that an appropriate specialist judge would be made available to hear matters in Liverpool where required.Senior judges have been at pains to stress the continuing role of regional courts since the specialist civil courts were renamed the Business and Property Courts in 2017. At the time, Sir Geoffrey Vos, chancellor of the High Court, spoke of a ‘new litigation superhighway’ to the north. Exchange Chambers director Jonathan I’Anson said the BHP Billiton judgment, which has not been published, comes as a boost for the Northern Circuit. ‘This judgment reinforces the principle that no case is too big to be tried in Liverpool or the regions,’ he said. ‘The judge’s comments confirm that the Business and Property Courts in Liverpool are open for business. They are a suitable home for the most complex and valuable litigation both domestic and international in nature.’The dam collapse resulted in 19 people being killed, hundreds of homes being destroyed, and hundreds of thousands of people left without drinking water.Tom Goodhead, lead partner on the matter for SPG, said those who suffered catastrophic losses have received no compensation. Brazil’s courts are ‘cripplingly slow’, he explained, prompting the litigation to start in this country. ‘The main purpose of filing this case in the UK is to move at greater speed and to seek a greater amount. People have been let down by the politicians and the courts.’Slaughter and May declined to comment when approached by the Gazette.last_img read more

Does it still add up? USU + UU = Rivalry

first_imgE-mail: [email protected] Utes vs. Ags truly battle of families Relatedcenter_img UTAH STATE AT UTAH, 1 P.M. SATURDAY, RICE-ECCLES STADIUM, THE MTN. Up until about 40 years ago, it was THE rivalry in the state of Utah.Utah vs. Utah State.For many years, the game was played on Thanksgiving weekend, often on Thanksgiving Day, and most years it was played as the season-ending game.Utah-BYU? That was anything but a rivalry, considering that the Cougars won a grand total of two times between 1922 and 1964.Nowadays you have to wonder if Utah vs. Utah State is really a rivalry any more. The Utes have won 17 of the last 19 meetings and 23 of 27 since 1980. Over the past five years, the Utes have won by an average of 30.8 points.Whether they believe it or not, players and coaches are still calling it a rivalry.”Sure it is. It’s an in-state rivalry,” said Ute coach Kyle Whittingham. “It’s been through cycles over the years, but it’s a game we’re excited to play. I think it’s a healthy rivalry. I think it makes a lot of sense to play the game every year for a lot of reasons.””It’s a game that both teams are always excited to play,” said Utah State coach Brent Guy. “A lot of these kids know a lot of those players there because they played against each other in high school or maybe even with each other in high school. So emotionally it won’t be hard to get the guys ready to play this game.”Perhaps no one understands the Utah-Utah State rivalry better than Ute safety Steve Tate.After growing up a Ute fan, he went to Utah State out of high school and played against the Utes, before switching to the red and white following an LDS mission.”I’m pretty biased because I want this game more than anybody since I went (to Utah State),” Tate said. “The fans may look at it as not so much of a rivalry, but as players and coaches we treat as an in-state rivalry game. I know up there they treat it as a huge game. I know how much it means to them and it means a lot to us as well.”There was a time in the not-so-distant past when the Ute-Aggie series was competitive. Most people point to the early 1960s, when USU wasn’t invited to join the original Western Athletic Conference with Utah and BYU, as the start of the downfall of Aggie football.That may have been the turning point, but it was actually in the 1960s and ’70s when USU had its best success against Utah, holding a 12-8 edge over the Utes. The Aggies went 6-4 in each decade, the only two decades in history when the Aggies held an edge over Utah.In the ’60’s, it was the Olsen brothers, Merlin and Phil, who helped lead the Aggies to several wins over the Utes. Two of the biggest Utah State victories came in 1972, when Tony Adams passed for an NCAA record (at the time) 561 yards against Utah in a 44-16 win, and 1979, when the Aggies torched the Utes in Salt Lake 47-21 behind future NFL quarterback Eric Hipple.However, since 1980, the series had been nearly all Utes, who have a 23-4 edge since.The only Aggie victories over the past 27 years were a 21-17 Aggie win in Logan in 1983 when Ute coach Chuck Stobart went berserk in the locker room about the officiating, and the 1986 game when Chuck Shelton’s Aggies came to Salt Lake and went home with a 41-36 win over Jim Fassel’s defenseless Utes.The other two wins were the 1996 and ’97 victories under John L. Smith, two wins that are still fresh on the mind of Whittingham, who was defensive coordinator at the time.One clue that the rivalry still means a lot to the Utes can be found at the top of the stairs on the south side of the Smith Football Center.A plaque on the wall under the heading “Utah wins vs. Utah State” lists every win over the Aggies since the 21-0 victory in 1900 up until last year’s 48-0 win in Logan. Above the plaque are pictures of past Utah-Utah State games. “It’s overshadowed by the Utah-BYU rivalry, but there’s no doubt that when you play Utah State it’s for bragging rights,” said Tate. “We treat this as a big game for us.” The last 10 Results from the past 10 years in the Utah-Utah State rivalry: 2006: Utah 48, Utah St. 02005: Utah 31, Utah St. 72004: Utah 48, Utah St. 62003: Utah 40, Utah St. 202002: Utah 23, Utah St. 32001: Utah 23, Utah St. 192000: Utah 35, Utah St. 141999: Utah 38, Utah St. 181998: Utah 20, Utah St. 121997: Utah St. 21, Utah 14 last_img read more

Bengals’ top 2 picks were locked on each other in bowl game

first_imgCincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd (83) catches a pass during an NFL football photo opportunity practice, Friday, May 6, 2016, in Cincinnati. (AP Photo/John Minchillo)CINCINNATI (AP) _ Tyler Boyd knows all about the cornerback who will be guarding him during the Cincinnati Bengals’ rookie minicamp this weekend. He saw what William Jackson III can do firsthand.The Bengals’ top two picks have already shared a big moment together. They were on opposite sides for one of the biggest comebacks in bowl history. Jackson was Houston’s top cornerback and Boyd was Pitt’s best receiver in the Armed Forces Bowl following the 2014 season.Boyd had a big game, but Houston rallied from a 34-13 deficit with 6:14 left to a 35-34 win, the largest comeback in a bowl game that didn’t go to overtime.Forget it? Hardly.“We had some nice battles,” Boyd said Friday.The two have lockers across the room from each other for the three-day minicamp, where they got to meet again. Jackson was the Bengals’ first-round pick a week ago, with Boyd going to the Bengals in the second round. Both appreciate how unusual it is for players who were matched up in a bowl game to end up together on the same NFL team as rookies.Both know a little bit about what to expect, too.“That’s real different, but I’m ready for the task,” Jackson said. “He’s a great player. He caught lot of balls in that game. Now he’s a teammate and the sky’s the limit.”Boyd was the Panthers’ do-it-all receiver, and he had a game-high nine catches for 112 yards, helping them get that big lead. The game was played in the rain, so Houston played softer coverages to prevent a big play. Jackson wound up guarding Boyd only a few times in man-to-man coverage.“There wasn’t a lot of man coverage because it was wet and slick,” Boyd said. “They played off us a little bit. I didn’t get matched up with him as often as people thought we would have.”They’ll get more closely acquainted during practices at Paul Brown Stadium with the rest of the rookies. Jackson has a chance to win a role on special teams while he learns to play cornerback in the NFL. The Bengals have starting cornerbacks Adam “Pacman” Jones and Dre Kirkpatrick back, along with No. 3 cornerback Darqueze Dennard.By contrast, the Bengals are hoping Boyd can move into a significant role right away. They lost two of their top three receivers, Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu, during free agency. Boyd reminds the Bengals of Sanu with his versatility.Sanu ran wildcat formations and threw the ball with the Bengals. Boyd lined up in the backfield and ran the ball at Pitt, and he threw it on occasion, too. He’d welcome the chance to do those things in the NFL.“I believe I can handle that role pretty well,” he said. “I’ve been doing it since high school.”He got a preview during a walkthrough Friday morning. The Bengals had him carry the ball on a reverse similar to one Pitt used. The main difference is that Pitt’s version allowed for the receiver throw it.“We tagged it in college with a pass,” Boyd said. “It was a very successful play. I think they might tag that on here as well.”Notes: CB Darius Hillary is one of 13 undrafted free agents signed by the Bengals. His father, Ira, was a receiver with the Bengals from 1987-89, catching 27 passes for 303 yards and two touchdowns. He also had a 17-yard catch during the Bengals’ Super Bowl loss to San Francisco in the 1988 season. Darius attended high school in Cincinnati and went to Wisconsin. “I’ve been around this team since I was little,” he said. “Just to have the chance to put on a jersey with my name on the back is pretty cool.”___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL___Follow Joe Kay on Twitter: http://twitter.com/apjoekaylast_img read more

France earn their place in the Last 16 while Peru can already prepare their flight home

first_img Francia pone las sonrisas y Perú las lágrimas France brought on Dembele with the final 20 minutes and he looked lively but still short of confidence. He had an opportunity to put the game to bed but couldn’t keep his effort on target. In the end it didn’t matter as Peru’s inability to create genuine chances meant France only need the solitary goal to claim victory. Andrew Gaffney Central de Ekaterimburgo. 35.000 espectadores. Perú MATCH FACTS Primera fase del Mundial – Grupo C France became the third side to qualify for the Round of 16 after notching their second win in as many matches as they beat plucky Peru 1-0 in Group C. Upd. at 20:20 CEST A place in the last sixteen awaits France while Peru’s players can start planning their summer holidays as the World Cup adventure is over for them. Lloris; Pavard, Varane, Umtiti, Lucas Hernandez; Kanté, Matuidi; Mbappé (Dembélé, 74′), Pogba (Nzonzi, 88′), Griezmann (Fekir, 79′); y Giroud. Estadio PER IN SPORT.ES 1-0 Gallese; Advíncula, Ramos, Rodríguez (Santamaría, 46′), Trauco; Aquino, Yutún (Farfán, 46′); Carrillo, Cueva (Ruidíaz, 81′), Flores; y Guerrero. Peru upped the tempo in the second half as they desperately searched for the equaliser but even when they did break through, Hugo Lloris was there to clean up. To bring up the comparison with Morocco again, Peru lacked a cutting edge in the final third which we have seen is making the difference in these tight encounters. Cristiano for Portugal, Cheryshev for Russia and Kane for England are just some examples of how a bit of quality in attack goes a long way at this level, despite how nicely you can knock the ball around. The opening period was largely controlled by France and it came as no surprise when Kylian Mbappe, who has started this tournament in good spirits after his impressive season at PSG, got off the mark 10 minutes before half time. Giroud was played in behind by Paul Pogba and his effort ricocheted off the defender and fell kindly to Mbappe, a yard out, to tap home and give France the lead. Mbappe became France’s youngest goalscorer in World Cup history. Peru knew they needed to win in order to keep their slim World Cup hopes alive and there was a first start for Paolo Guerrero as they looked to do that. The South Americans have something of a cult following due to their exciting style of football but much like Morocco, it hasn’t translated to positive results out on the pitch. 21/06/2018 FRA The biggest surprise in France’s starting lineup was the omission of Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele. Olivier Giroud was instead preferred to lead the line with Antoine Griezmann sitting just behind him, a role he’s used to at Atletico Madrid. Mohammed Abdullah Hassan (Estados Árabes Unidos).
