Kalmar is set to deliver 38 new container handler machines to DP World Australia for its new logistics arm, DP World Logistics Australia. The order includes 7 Kalmar reachstackers, 11 loaded and 20 empty container handlers. 22 units have successfully been delivered to DP World Logistics Australia’s Botany Intermodal terminal with the remaining equipment to be delivered by September 2017.
Kalmar reachstackers will be equipped with Kalmar K-Motion transmission technology, which secures uptime and productivity while reducing fuel consumption and emissions. Four units will also include overheight legs.
Ron French, National Engineering Manager at DP World Australia: “Kalmar won a competitive tender to renew, and increase, our fleet of machines in all our facilities around Australia. Our existing relationship gave us leverage to secure the best outcome for DP World Australia with respect to pricing, service and ongoing support. The K-Motion option was very attractive due to lower fuel consumption and environmental impact.”
Michael Wahab, Director Mobile Equipment at Kalmar: “We are happy to continue to serve DP World Logistics Australia with reliable and efficient equipment tailored to their needs. The units are also equipped with environmentally conscious technology, including innovative K-Motion technology to significantly lessen fuel usage and reduce emissions by up to 40%.”
