Tec Container overheight frame in Tahiti

COTODA S.A. – a major stevedoring company in Tahiti, French Polynesia – has purchased a semi-automatic telescopic over height frame from Tec Container Asia Pacific. The over height frame was delivered early this year at the depot of COTADA in Tahiti. The frame is attached to a mobile harbour crane and has been in operation successfully since April. This is the second time that Tec Container Asia Pacific has supplied COTADA since the last order of a lashing cage in 2018.
