InTrade International wins crane, rail-car mover orders in Venezuela


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

The company won a $1.2 million order from CVG Ferrominera Orinoco CA to supply five Swingmaster 181TC multi-purpose cranes. One of South America’s largest iron-ore miners, CVG will use the cranes to handle ties, rails and other materials for a track expansion project that’s under way.

InTrade has delivered two of the cranes and will deliver the remaining three units in March. CVG previously ordered two Swingmaster cranes from the company in first-half 2006.

Meanwhile, InTrade also won a $260,000 order from Orinoco Iron CA to supply one Shuttlewagon® mobile rail-car mover. InTrade delivered the machine in November. Orinoco Iron is using the Shuttlewagon to relieve locomotives at its mineral loading hub.

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