Kalmar has received an order from Innofreight Solutions GmbH (Innofreight), an Austrian rail logistics service provider, for a heavy electric forklift. This order marks the first time a customer will receive a forklift of this kind anywhere in the world. The order was registered in Cargotec’s Q4 2022 order intake, and the machine is expected to be delivered in Q4 2023.
Innofreight, established in 2002, specializes in developing modular rail wagon solutions for a broad range of industrial sectors, such as agriculture, construction, and pulp and paper. The company’s equipment is currently in operation in 20 European countries across all three European standard rail gauges. Innofreight’s current fleet includes 60 diesel-powered Kalmar forklifts with varying lifting capacities.
Peter Wanek-Pusset, Managing Director, Innofreight: “If we are to achieve our target to be carbon neutral by 2040 it is essential that we start reducing our reliance on fossil fuels now. Kalmar is a long-term partner and a leader in the field of eco-efficient electric equipment, so we are very pleased to be able to take this initiative forward together with them.”
