The Port of Oslo will receive three Eco reachstackers and two reachstackers for empty container handling; the Leixões Container Terminal - two Eco reachstackers; Yilport Huelva - one Eco reachstacker and four heavy terminal tractors; Yilport Gebze - one Eco reachstacker and two empty container handlers; Puerto Bolívar - two reachstackers and two empty container handlers; and Gävle Container Terminal - eight heavy terminal tractors.

The delivery of all machines is scheduled for Q3 and Q4 of 2021.

The Port of Oslo and Gävle Container Terminal have a Kalmar Optimal Care service agreement in place which will cover all the new equipment. Yilport Huelva and Leixões Container Terminal are supported by Kalmar's on-call services, while Gebze and Puerto Bolivar will be serviced and supported by Kalmar's local dealers.

"Our collaboration with Kalmar has been extremely beneficial for our business operations at all our terminals.
