Terminal automation provider Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has concluded an agreement to supply Servicios Logisticos Portuarios SLP, a leading cargo-handling operator at the Port of Bilbao, Spain with a total of five heavy-duty forklift trucks.

The order was booked in Cargotec's 2019 Q1 order intake, with delivery scheduled to be completed early in Q3 of 2019, said a press release from the provider of cargo-handling solutions and services to ports and terminals.

The customer already operates a number of older Kalmar forklifts at Bilbao and appreciates their reliable performance. The five new units will primarily be used to handle steel mill products such as plates and coils.

Ignacio De Sebastian, Solution Sales Manager, Kalmar: "Steel handling is a particularly demanding application where safety and operational efficiency are paramount. It is in these areas where our heavy-duty solutions excel and will deliver exactly what the customer needs."

Kalmar's heavy-duty forklifts are trusted by customers around the world for their reliability, flexibility and precision in a wide variety of demanding terminal and heavy-industry applications.

They feature the EGO cabin for excellent visibility in all directions, easily accessible service points to make maintenance faster and easier, and a stable, versatile control system that offers a wide range of possibilities for customising the truck's functions. The trucks supplied to the customer will have a lifting capacity of 33 tons.
