Logistics operator buys 10 reachstackers
12 June 2020
Kalmar, part of Cargotec, is to supply Contargo Group with a total of 10 Gloria reachstackers.
With an annual throughput of over two million TEU, Contargo is one of the leading container hinterland logistics networks in Europe. The company integrates container transport between the western seaports, Germany’s North Sea ports and the European hinterland.
The Kalmar Gloria reachstacker for empty and semi-laden container handling enables safe, precise handling of all types of containers and slinged loads up to 12 tonnes. Containers can be transported at full width, turned 45° or lengthwise at 90°, making it possible to deliver “end-on” into and through low workshop doors, port sheds and other tight openings.
Three Kalmar reachstackers for empty and semi-laden container handling will be delivered to Contargo Rhein-Neckar in Ludwigshafen and Mannheim, six Kalmar reachstackers to Contargo Wörth-Karlsruhe in Wörth and Speyer, and one Kalmar reachstacker to Contargo Rhein-Main in Gustavsburg.
All 10 machines will be fitted with engines that meet EU Stage V emission standards.
