ASHDOD Port Company Ltd has taken delivery of a total of eight Kalmar G generation medium forklifts and seven Kalmar Gloria reachstackers.
Ashdod is Israel's largest marine port by cargo volume and is located 40 kilometres from Tel Aviv. The port has excellent connections to major commercial centres and highways.
The G generation forklifts produced by Kalmar, which is a part of Cargotec, feature the latest in fuel-efficient technology and offer low total cost of ownership. They deliver lower fuel consumption and maintenance costs 'even in the most demanding applications such as steel and wood handling,' a company statement said.
The Gloria reachstacker features a number of improvements that boost operator efficiency, including a cabin with a panoramic view, intuitive interfaces, proactive monitoring and a comfortable seat designed for long shifts and demanding operations. One of the units supplied to Ashdod port features extension legs to enable it to handle open-top containers for handling odd loads.
All units supplied to Ashdod also feature a SOLAS-compliant load measurement system for accurate measurement of the verified gross mass of the load being handled.
Ashdod Port Company's technical department head Danny Gat said: 'We have developed an excellent working relationship with Kalmar over the years.'
Vice president logistics Shimon Sytniavsky added: 'We especially appreciate the great level of local support they (Kalmar) provide as well as the high quality and fantastic reliability of their mobile equipment solutions.'
