Kalmar will supply DR Depots, a subsidiary of the DR group of Companies, with nine empty container handlers and one Kalmar Gloria reachstacker. This order, which was concluded through Kalmar’s local dealer Feyter Forklift Services, was booked in Q2 2020 order intake, with all units scheduled for delivery in Q4 2020.
The new machines will be operated at the company’s sites in Rotterdam and Antwerp and will be fitted with a range of additional safety features. These include the Kalmar Drive Speed Limiter System, which helps to reduce the risk of accidents, the Kalmar Reverse Warning System, a camera-based system that minimises the risk of damage to other objects when reversing, and additional lighting to improve visibility.
This is the first order for Kalmar’s new empty container handler, which extends the range by including an 11-ton lifting capacity for both single and double stacking in five different stacking heights.
Ron de Roo, Owner, DR Depots: “Kalmar machines have an excellent reputation for high quality, and this is backed up by the superb service we have received from Feyter Forklift Services. Having a reliable service partner is critical for our business, and these new machines will also help us address the growth in throughput at our Rotterdam and Antwerp depots.”
