Shanghai International Port (Group) Co., Ltd (SIPG) has ordered four reachstackers and 11 empty container handlers for its Shanghai operations.
The order has been booked into the Cargotec’s 2018 second quarter order intake, and the machines are scheduled for delivery in Q3 2018.
Kalmar noted that SIPG operates all the public container and bulk terminals in Port of Shanghai, where container throughput exceeded 40M TEU last year, and there is a large fleet of Kalmar equipment. “The new equipment will join the fleet of around 100 Kalmar reachstackers, empty container handlers, forklifts and terminal tractors currently in use at SIPG to support its container handling, warehousing and dangerous goods transportation business,” Kalmar said.
"We are very happy to receive this substantial order from SIPG for three consecutive years. With the high container volumes, the daily operations at SIPG places extremely high demands on equipment, and Kalmar reachstackers and empty container handlers have a proven track record in boosting container handling efficiency and helping customer to meet their business objectives. We are pleased to continue our long-term partnership with SIPG and will like to thank them for choosing Kalmar equipment once again to support their business operations," said Alex Tang, Sales Director of Kalmar China.
