Kalmar to deliver 18 forklift trucks to Algerian ports to cut dwell time

KALMAR, part of Finland's Cargotec, is delivering 18 forklifts to four different port authorities in Algeria - Algiers, Bejaia, Djen Djen and Mostaganem. 

The order was awarded by the Algerian port procurement company, Groupement d'Interet Commun des Entreprises Portuaires (GICEP) in April.

GICEP groups together all public ports in Algeria, handling 800,000 TEU annually, and also does stevedoring and general cargo handling. 

"The new Kalmar equipment will help reduce cargo dwell times and increase storage capacity at the ports," the Kalmar statement said, adding that its previous delivery to Algeria included 25 reachstackers.

Said GICEP general manager Saidi Mabrouk: "Our ports are investing considerably to add handling capacity and modernise fleets. After the good experience with our previous orders for Kalmar reachstackers, we are convinced that we have made the right choice." 

Said Kalmar sales manager Eduardo Arus: "The machines will be working in demanding port environment. The Kalmar forklift trucks have been tested in the toughest of jobs and are known for their reliability, flexibility and performance." 

The delivery includes four medium forklifts and 14 heavy forklift trucks: four Kalmar DCE160-12 medium range units, six Kalmar DCF180-12 forklift trucks, three Kalmar DCF330-12 and DCF420-12 units as well as one Kalmar DCF520-12. Five units are equipped with an attachment for coil handling. The delivery includes a spare parts package.
