Konecranes has delivered its 10,000th lift truck, a Flow Drive reachstacker, to Absolut Vodka in Åhus in the southern Swedish province of Skån.

“In 1995, Absolut bought the first commercial reachstacker Konecranes ever produced, and in 2004, they took delivery of our first ever produced second-generation reachstacker,” says Roger Persson, technical product manager for Konecranes Lift Trucks. “Now, we celebrate the delivery of our 10,000th lift truck to the very same company.

“Local agent N.C. Nielsen has been a significant part of this relationship and has provided excellent support whenever needed. We’re honoured to have both Absolut and N.C. Nielsen share in this historic occasion.”

The 10,000th truck is a Konecranes SMV 4632 TC5 reachstacker, a sturdy 46 T machine able to stack up to five containers high.

Absolut will run this lift truck on HVO100, a completely renewable and fossil-free chemical copy of regular diesel, based on vegetable oil, which can reduce carbon emissions by up to 90%.
