Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has received an order for five forklift trucks and two T2 terminal tractors from HeavyMovement S.L in Barcelona, Spain. The delivery will take place during December 2016.
HeavyMovement are headquartered in Barcelona, Spain, providing outsourced operations services such as warehouse management and handling of iron and steel products to the metal industry.
The new equipment will join a fleet of over 30 Kalmar heavy duty forklift trucks, 20 terminal tractors and three reachstackers already in use at HeavyMovement.
Ivan Bailach, Deputy Managing Director at HeavyMovement, says: “We have a long-standing relationship with Kalmar and have always appreciated their flexibility to adapt to our needs. We work hard to outperform our competitors in safety, productivity and quality. With the new machines we will be able to decrease our running costs and improve the safety of our operations. The new Kalmar forklift trucks will give our drivers much better visibility when working. At the same time we will be able to accurately track their performance using Kalmar SmartFleet remote monitoring system. We are also proud to be ordering the first Kalmar T2 terminal tractors to be delivered to Iberia.”
Kalmar DCG160-12 forklift trucks can handle loads of up to 17 tonnes and have a 1200 mm load centre. They have a 180-degree rotating seat, improving visibility and safety on site. They also come equipped with Kalmar SmartFleet, a solution for remote monitoring and reporting that enables more effective management of handling operations while decreasing downtime and improving safety. The two Kalmar T2 terminal tractors have a gross combination weight of 95 tonnes and will be used to transport steel from production plants to the warehouses.
