Maritime Transport, a provider of integrated road and rail freight logistics in the United Kingdom, has ordered eight Kalmar Eco reachstackers, along with a seven-year Kalmar Complete Care package and Kalmar Insight coverage.

Two of the new reachstackers will be deployed at the company’s rail facility in Wakefield, and six at Hams Hall Rail Freight Terminal close to Birmingham.

The order was booked in Cargotec’s first quarter order intake and the machines will be delivered in two batches of four units in the third quarter of this year and next.

“Our existing Kalmar Eco reachstackers have been delivering significant fuel and cost savings and we have been very satisfied with their reliability,” says Tom Glenn, Maritime Transport’s national plant manager. 

“On average, we are achieving fuel savings of five litres per hour.”

Maritime Transport, founded in 2001, employs 3,000 personnel across 41 sites including eight strategic rail freight terminals. 

The company operates the UK’s largest fleet of container-handling equipment, including 10 Kalmar Eco reachstackers and two Kalmar straddle carriers.
