Kalmar has landed a significant order from Yilport Holding Inc. for a total of 27 new Kalmar machines: 20 Eco reachstackers, four empty container handlers and three forklifts. Deliveries will begin in Q3 2022, with the last machines to be received during Q1 2023.

The agreement also includes extended warranty and service contracts for all equipment to be delivered.

Today, Yilport operates 22 marine ports and terminals globally: five in Turkey, seven in Portugal, two in Spain, two in Sweden and one each in Norway, Malta, Italy, Peru, Ecuador and Guatemala. 

In addition, Yilport operates five dry terminals in Turkey and one in Sweden.

Gebze and Gemport in Turkey will receive four Kalmar Eco reachstackers, one empty container handler and a forklift. 

Gävle Terminal in Sweden will receive six Kalmar Eco reachstackers, one empty container handler and two forklifts. 

The Taranto Terminal in Italy will receive two Kalmar Eco reachstackers. 

Yilport's operations in Portugal will receive five Eco reachstackers for the Setúbal terminal; one Eco reachstacker and one empty container handler for Liscont terminal; and two Eco reachstackers and one empty container handler for Sotagus terminal. 

Raymond Höhle, CTO, Yilport, says: “Our continued collaboration with Kalmar has been extremely beneficial for our business operations at all our terminals. The high-quality local after-sales support at all our locations is helping to keep our fleet running smoothly at all times.

“We have been very satisfied with the excellent support to help identify the right solutions for our needs, with good and reliable performance. It is also very important that Kalmar can support our sustainability targets with the low fuel consumption on the Eco reachstackers.”
