German logistics operator Contargo Group has placed an order with Kalmar for the supply of 10 Gloria reachstackers. All 10 machines will be fitted with engines that meet EU Stage V emission standards.
With an annual throughput of over two million TEU, Contargo is one of the leading container hinterland logistics networks in Europe. The company integrates container transport between the western seaports, Germany’s North Sea ports and the European hinterland.
Markus Stengel, Senior Technical Manager, Contargo: “We have a long-standing and successful relationship with Kalmar, so it was a natural choice to turn to them when selecting new equipment to expand our fleet. We have been highly satisfied with the local service support for our existing machines and are looking forward to bringing the new ones online in December.”
Peter Zücker, Sales Manager, Kalmar Germany: “This order is a reflection of the high level of trust that Contargo places in both our equipment and our local support services, which help to keep the machines running reliably around the clock. We are delighted to be able to continue supporting Contargo in maintaining their position as a leading provider of logistics services.”
Three Kalmar reachstackers for empty and semi-laden container handling will be delivered to Contargo Rhein-Neckar GmbH in Ludwigshafen and Mannheim, six Kalmar reachstackers to Contargo Wörth-Karlsruhe GmbH in Wörth and Speyer, and one Kalmar reachstacker to Contargo Rhein-Main GmbH in Gustavsburg.
