Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has received an order from Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) for container-handling equipment. The order, comprising five Kalmar reachstackers and two empty container handlers, was booked in Cargotec’s 2017 third quarter intake. Delivery will commence in Q4 2017 and continue into Q2 2018.
The new machines form part of a fleet renewal programme and will be used for processing laden and empty containers at MSCs five terminal locations across South Africa. MSC chose to renew its fleet with Kalmar equipment based on the reliable and economic performance of their existing Kalmar machines. Kalmar’s local team of technicians provides MSC with technical support, spare parts and training services.
