Kalmar to supply straddle carriers to DP World
Kalmar has won a contract to deliver 10 diesel-electric straddle carriers for DP World’s Melbourne operation.
According to the cargo handling specialists, the large scale order of straddle carriers will be in service during the second half of 2016.
“We are excited to receive this order from our long standing customer DP World,” said Peter McLean, Kalmar vice president, Australia and New Zealand.
“We are pleased to offer them a solution that boosts productivity, efficiency and safety through increased operating performance and superior operator ergonomics,” he added.
The Kalmar new straddle carriers will feature a redesigned cabin with a more spacious interior, as well as a new window geometry that reduces night time reflections and cabin noise.
