Kalmar wins ECH deal in Charleston

Kalmar has won a contract to supply two ECH mast trucks to South Carolina State Ports Authority by offering the best warranty terms

The contract to supply two DCF90-45E empty handlers to the SCSPA was awarded through Cargotec's local dealer, Gregory Poole. The two machines are slated for delivery in April.

The SCSPA had called for bids to trade in two 13-year old ECH machines operating at North Charleston and Wando Welch terminals, and replace them with two new units. There were four bidders: Gregory Poole, Briggs Equipment (Hyster), Taylor Big Red and Hoist Liftruck.

Base bids per new unit were: Hoist Liftruck, US$280,000 for its ECH7 machine; Gregory Poole US$345,000 for Kalmar’s DCF90-45E; Taylor US$377,500 for its TXE207/8; and Briggs Equipment US$305,982 for the Hyster H500HD-EC. Low bidder Hoist therefore came in at US$97,500 under the high bidder Taylor, but it declined to trade the old machines. Gregory Poole offered a lot price of US$136,000 on the trade, Taylor US$100,000 and Briggs US$80,000.

The final bid prices were thus Briggs US$531,964, Gregory Poole US$554,000, Hoist US$560,000 and Taylor US$655,000. SCSPA staff recommended awarding the contract to Gregory Poole because of its “extended factory warranty duration and included service hours.” Gregory Poole offered 24 months/8000 hours on the Kalmar machines, compared to 24 months/5000 hours from Taylor and 12 months/2000 hours from both Briggs (Hyster) and Hoist.
