Kalmar has received an order to supply materials handling equipment to Pacific Materials Handling.
Equipment specialist Kalmar has been awarded an order to supply 20 forklifts and 20 reach stackers to Pacific Materials Handling which provides materials handling solutions to manufacturing, port and logistics companies throughout Australia.

Scheduled for delivery in the third quarter of 2013, the reach stackers are destined for terminals across the Asia Pacific region, are capable of stacking 9’6" containers up to five high and feature a wheelbase of 6,250 mm, providing enhanced stability and manoeuvrability.

The forklifts to be supplied are suitable for various industrial and stevedoring applications. Featuring 16 T capacity at 600 mm load centres, the units are the first to incorporate the new Kalmar EGO cabin.

"Lowering the cost of ownership is increasingly becoming a critical factor and this is where our reach stackers and forklift trucks excel - through designing and building machines tailored for the region," says Kalmar’s vice president, Australia and New Zealand, Peter McLean.

Kalmar, part of Cargotec, is the industry forerunner in terminal automation and in energy-efficient container handling, with one in four container movements around the globe being handled by a Kalmar solution.
