InTrade International to provide cranes, rail-car mover to two Venezuelan mining firms


InTrade International Inc. recently obtained two railroad equipment orders in Venezuela.

The company will provide two Swingmaster model 181TC cranes to CVG Ferrominera Orinoco CA, one of South America’s largest iron ore miners. Designed to handle track materials on- and off-rail, the crane features 10,000-pound lifting capacity, a nine-foot tote hook, tilt cab, hydraulic drive system and various attachments. InTrade delivered one crane May 31 and expects to deliver the second on June 19.

The company also will provide one Shuttlewagon® model SWX435C mobile rail-car mover to mining firm Orinoco Iron CA. The hydraulically operated machine — which doesn’t require weight transfer — features 30,000-pound drawbar pull, an anti-lock brake system and dynamic traction control. InTrade expects to deliver the machine on July 19.

An international marketing and sales development company, InTrade provides sales, consulting, import/export, market research and business management services to the global rail industry.
