Kalmar, Super Terminais extend partnership with equipment order for Brazilian box terminal

Kalmar has inked an agreement with its longstanding Brazilian partner Super Terminais to provide a comprehensive range of equipment and services for the Manaus terminal in northern Brazil.

Super Terminais has ordered four Kalmar reach stackers, two Kalmar empty container handlers, eight Kalmar Essential terminal tractors and the Kalmar Insight performance management tool. The machines are scheduled to be delivered in the third quarter of 2024.

"We currently operate a fleet of over 40 Kalmar machines and have always been exceptionally satisfied with their reliability and fuel efficiency. As a result, it was a straightforward decision to once again select Kalmar to support our terminal expansion plans," stated Marcello Di Gregorio, managing director of Super Terminais.

With aspirations to become the most efficient private terminal in the Manaus Industrial Complex, Super Terminais boasts over 30 years of experience in the transport and logistics sector. The company recently expanded its operations by adding 180 meters of wharf.

"Super Terminais is a key customer in the Americas region and a partner with whom we have a long history. The new fleet of machines will deliver world-class reliability and productivity to support Super Terminais in making their terminal expansion project a success and maintaining their position as a market-leading container terminal," said Alexander Esse, sales manager of Ports & Terminals at Kalmar Americas.
