Next-gen straddle carrier for Maritime
06 April 2021
MARITIME TRANSPORT will take two next-generation Kalmar straddle carriers for its Birmingham Intermodal Freight Terminal (BIFT) in Tamworth.
The order includes a 10-year Kalmar Complete Care service agreement effective from the date of delivery of the machines, which is scheduled for Q3 2021.
At the end of 2020, Maritime took delivery of two Kalmar Eco Reachstackers at its rail terminal in Wakefield.
The Kalmar Straddle Carriers delivered to Maritime will be powered by a diesel-electric power unit and is said to feature excellent manoeuvrability, quiet operation and easy maintenance as well as a spacious, ergonomic cabin.
Maritime Transport national plant manager Tom Glenn says: “We have been delighted with the level of professionalism and expert support from the Kalmar team, who have guided us in selecting the right solutions for our operational needs. Kalmar’s straddle carrier solution will play an important part in enhancing the service we provide to our valued customers and their supply chains, while the Kalmar Complete Care service agreement will provide us with complete cost predictability for our maintenance processes.”
