Kalmar reachstackers deliver fuel savings and noise reduction for GVT Group and Logistics at Barge Terminal Tilburg
Kalmar, part of Cargotec, is continuing its co-operation with GVT Group and Logistics with the delivery of five new Kalmar Gloria reachstackers to Barge Terminal Tilburg (BTT) in the Netherlands. The order was booked into Cargotec's fourth quarter order intake and delivered in Q1 2017, the company said in its press release.
BTT serves as an important transportation hub to streamline goods movement between the port of Rotterdam and Tilburg. The order comprises five new reachstackers, four of which feature Kalmar K-Motion technology. The fifth machine will be used for barge handling at the Weert inland terminal. The new units join an existing fleet of five Kalmar reachstackers operated by GVT Group and Logistics
Kalmar K-Motion is a cutting-edge transmission technology that enables significant reductions in fuel and exhaust, and minimises noise through both the innovative drivetrain and through an optimised hydraulic system. The high-performance reachstackers will also be equipped with Kalmar SmartFleet, which provides operational insights reports and KPIs through remote monitoring.
