Kalmar inks largest Parts Care deal

Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has signed a Kalmar Parts Care agreement with Victoria International Container Terminal (VICT).

The agreement signed in December 2019 is for three years and covers the availability of Kalmar genuine spare parts for the terminal’s fleet of Kalmar equipment. It is the first Parts Care agreement in Kalmar Australia, and the largest of its kind for Kalmar worldwide.

VICT is Australia’s first fully automated container terminal located at the Port of Melbourne that welcomed its first vessel in March 2017. Kalmar's OneTerminal deployment at VICT includes the Kalmar Automatic Stacking Crane (ASC) system with 20 ASCs, 11 Kalmar AutoShuttles™, Kalmar Automated Truck Handling (ATH), Kalmar Terminal Logistics System (TLS) and the Navis N4 Terminal System. Kalmar is also responsible for the maintenance and support of the automated container handling software solution operating at VICT as well as technical support.

Kalmar Parts Care provides end-to-end visibility of VICT’s current spare parts processes by assessing their installed base and operational data. Through this analysis, a plan was devised to improve the availability of spare parts, to make spare parts management more efficient and share the inventory management risk.

Stuart Finch, General Manager, Engineering at VICT, said:

“this new Parts Care agreement will provide us significant benefits, due to a number of factors, including; cost savings, shortened lead times, guaranteed availability of parts, lower inventory levels, as well as increased cash flow and reduced downtime of equipment.”
