Kalmar secures another Contargo Group order

Kalmar will supply German logistics operator Contargo Group with a total of 10 Gloria reachstackers.

Three reachstackers for empty and semi-laden container handling will be delivered to Contargo Rhein-Neckar GmbH in Ludwigshafen and Mannheim, six Kalmar reachstackers to Contargo Wörth-Karlsruhe GmbH in Wörth and Speyer, and one Kalmar reachstacker to Contargo Rhein-Main GmbH in Gustavsburg.

The order from Contargo Rhein-Main GmbH was booked in Cargotec’s first quarter order intake, while the orders for the remaining seven machines were booked in the company’s second quarter order intake. All units are scheduled for delivery in the fourth quarter of 2020.

Kalmar, part of Cargotec, says its Gloria reachstacker for empty and semi-laden container handling enables safe, precise handling of all types of containers and slinged loads of 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, according to Kalmar.

The Kalmar Gloria reachstacker features a wide range of improvements that increase operator efficiency – not least in the cabin, with its panoramic view, intuitive interfaces, proactive monitoring and comfortable seat designed for long shifts.

“All 10 machines will be fitted with engines that meet EU Stage V emission standards,” added Kalmar.

Contargo Group has an annual throughput of over two million TEU.
