Kalmar books more AutoStrads for Patrick Terminals

Delivery of the machines is scheduled to be completed during Q2 of 2020.

 

Four of the AutoStrads will operate at Brisbane and four at Sydney, while the manual straddle carriers will operate at Melbourne. The new machines are part of Patrick Terminals’ fleet renewal programme and will join the company’s existing fleet of over 120 Kalmar straddle carriers.

 

Michael Jovicic, Chief Executive Officer, Patrick Terminals, said: "We’ve been relying on Kalmar’s innovative, reliable straddle carrier solutions to keep our automated and manual operations running safely and efficiently for many years. When it came to considering our options for renewing our straddle carrier fleet, it was a straightforward decision to continue our long-standing collaboration."

 

Tero Kokko, Senior Vice President, Automation and Projects, Kalmar: "We have developed a highly successful partnership with Patrick Terminals over the years, with our straddle carrier solutions forming the backbone of the fleet at their terminals. We have come a long way since the first ever commercial operation of the Kalmar AutoStrad at the company’s Brisbane terminal, and we are delighted to continue the story with this new order."
