Steveco ordered new machinery

Steveco has ordered new machinery from Kalmar. The order includes four diesel-electric straddle carriers, ten heavy-duty terminal tractors for RoRo handling, four light forklift trucks and two heavy forklift trucks. Delivery will take place during the latter part of 2016 and into quarter one, 2017.

- "With cargo volumes at our terminals growing, we require equipment that delivers high performance and reliability combined with low operating and maintenance costs”, Henri Kuitunen, CEO at Steveco.

The cooperation between Steveco and Kalmar began already in the 1950s when the very first Valmet machines came to the Port of Kotka. The new machines will join an already extensive and varied fleet of Kalmar equipment including 39 straddle carriers, 50 terminal tractors, 80 forklift trucks and 10 reachstackers. Kalmar is part of Cargotec.
