Cargotec’s Kalmar has reached an agreement to provide a substantial amount of port machinery to Hanselmann GmbH, a leading German supplier of rental machines.
Some 64 Kalmar forklift trucks, including medium and heavy variants, are included in the deal.
Maputo Port Development Company (MPDC) in Mozambique were the last to order Kalmar’s forklift trucks (three units) not more than a month ago.
The order was booked in Cargotec’s Q4 order intake and the machines are scheduled to be delivered in three separate batches during 2023.
Hanselmann is a market leader in its field with one of the biggest rental equipment fleets including forklifts, pick and carry cranes, aerial work platforms, as well as heavy-duty tools for a variety of small and big industrial applications all over the world.
Manfred Killermann, Sales Manager, Kalmar Germany, said: “Hanselmann is a long-standing partner of Kalmar and their fleet already features a wide variety of our forklift truck models. An order for such a significant volume of machines is another strong vote of confidence from the market in our forklift truck offering.”
This deal comes not more than two weeks after Kalmar initiated their project with Toyota Tsusho America Inc and global strategic environmental engineering consultancy, Ricardo, in a project to develop fuel cell powered terminal tractors.
Kalmar offers a wide range of cargo handling solutions and services to ports, terminals, distribution centres and to heavy industry.
