Scandanavian shipping and logistics company Wallenius Wilhelmsen has expanded its fleet in the United States with nine units from Kalmar.

The order is for four heavy electric forklifts, two electric reachstackers and three heavy terminal tractors.

“This order … represents the first sales of our electric reachstacker and heavy electric forklift to a customer in the USA,” says Kalmar Global Service Solutions Vice President Svante Alverönn.

The order, which also includes the Kalmar Insight fleet performance management tool, was booked in Cargotec’s fourth quarter 2023 order intake.  

The order is part of Wallenius Wilhelmsen clean fleet initiative of reducing its onshore logistics emissions with new equipment which is, where practicable, zero emission.   

Wallenius Wilhelmsen head of supplier and contract management Ove Moring says: “Our two companies have benefitted from a partnership  that stretches back more than three decades.

"This new agreement to renew our cargo-handling equipment with fully electric and more eco-efficient machines is an important step supporting our clean fleet initiative in the US.”
