Logent AB orders new Kalmar Eco Reachstacker

Logent AB orders new Kalmar Eco Reachstacker

Kalmar, part of Cargotec, will supply a Kalmar Eco Reachstacker to Swedish logistics service provider Logent AB under a five-year Kalmar EcoFlex rental agreement.

The order was booked in Cargotec’s 2022 Q3 order intake, with delivery scheduled for Q1 2023.

Logent’s current fleet includes 11 Kalmar terminal tractors, three forklifts, and three reachstackers, one of which will be replaced by the new machine being supplied under the EcoFlex agreement.

Under the terms of an EcoFlex agreement, customers are charged based on their operating behaviour and eco-efficiency level.

When operating solely in Eco mode customers pay only a fixed, lower-priced monthly fee, but when they use standard and power modes, they incur an additional hourly charge. 

“Our customers are demanding more from us in terms of sustainability in order to support their efforts to clean up their supply chains,” said Martin Högman, Site Manager, Hallsberg, Logent.

“The EcoFlex rental model is an ideal fit for our needs because it allows us to address these demands by cutting fuel consumption and emissions without compromising on productivity.”

“We are delighted to continue our fruitful relationship with Logent and to support them on their journey towards more sustainable operations,” added Andreas Westerdahl, Sales Manager, Kalmar Sweden.

“EcoFlex provides customers with the transparency and flexibility they need to effect real change by allowing them to closely monitor their operational behaviour and power usage.

“This helps them to make changes that lead to real reductions in fuel consumption and emissions.”

Last month, Kalmar announced it will supply 11 Kalmar Hybrid Shuttle Carriers to the Port of Virginia.

This is the sixth consecutive order of hybrid shuttle carriers from the port.
