Cargotec subsidiary Kalmar has received an order to deliver eight heavy-duty forklifts to C.RO Ports, which will be deployed at its three terminals across Europe.

Under the scope of the contract, Kalmar will offer complete care service covering all the machines. The forklifts are scheduled to be delivered in the fourth quarter of this year.

C.RO manages roll-on/roll-off (ro-ro) terminals in the UK, the Netherlands and Belgium. The three terminals are mainly used for handling, storage and on-carriage of trailers, containers, vehicles and general cargo.

Cargotec said that three of the Kalmar forklifts will be delivered to C.RO’s terminal in Belgium, two to their terminals in the Netherlands and three to their UK terminals.

C.RO Ports COO Paul Van Malderen said: “We have been using Kalmar machines for many years and have always appreciated their quality and reliability.

“The tier-4 compliant engine technology in the new forklifts will help us to reduce emissions in the terminals and meet our sustainability targets, while the reverse warning system and speed limiters will ensure we maintain our excellent safety standards.”
