Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has concluded an agreement with long-standing partner Matrans Rotterdam Terminal to supply four Kalmar Eco Reachstackers.
Matrans Rotterdam Terminal is a full-service logistics provider with extensive experience in various segments including forest products, project and breakbulk cargo, and short-sea container transport. The terminal is part of the Matrans Group and is located in the Port of Rotterdam.
Roelf Buist, managing director, Matrans, commented: “Our existing fleet of Kalmar Eco Reachstackers has been instrumental in helping us to cut emissions at the terminal and achieve a significant reduction in fuel costs. Adding additional machines of the same type was therefore a relatively straightforward decision, especially considering the excellent relationship we have built with the Kalmar services team.”
The order, which includes a comprehensive five-year Kalmar Complete Care service agreement for the machines, was booked in Cargotec’s 2020 Q1 order intake, with delivery scheduled to take place during Q2 of 2020.
Dave Patterson, vice president west and south Europe, Kalmar, added: “The Kalmar Eco Reachstacker is a prime example of our commitment to develop solutions that help customers to minimise their environmental impact while continuously improving their productivity. As well as demonstrating a high level of satisfaction with the machines, this order also reflects the excellent work of our service team on the ground.”
