Kalmar’s first heavy electric forklift, due for delivery Q4 2023, will help Austrian rail logistics service provider Innofreight Solutions achieve a target of carbon neutrality by 2040.

Kalmar Austria area sales manager Dietmar Kohlhuber says the first-ever order for eco-efficient heavy electric forklifts is the latest addition to the Kalmar electric portfolio launched last year.

“Innofreight is a true pioneer in the rail logistics space and we are delighted that they have chosen our technology to showcase the benefits of electrically-powered machines in demanding cargo-handling operations,” says Kohlhuber.

Founded in 2022, Innofreight develops modular rail wagon solutions for several industrial sectors, with its equipment operating in 20 European countries on all three European standard rail gauges.

Innofreight’s current equipment fleet includes 60 diesel-powered Kalmar forklifts with various lifting capacities.

“If we are to achieve our target to be carbon neutral by 2040, it is essential that we start reducing our reliance on fossil fuels now,” says Innofreight managing director Peter Wanek-Pusset.

“Kalmar is a long-term partner and a leader in the field of eco-efficient electric equipment, so we are very pleased to be able to take this initiative together with them.”
