Kalmar Empty Container Handlers order DR Depots

The new machines will be deployed at the DR Depots sites in Rotterdam and Antwerp and will be equipped with a range of additional safety features. These include the Kalmar Drive Speed Limiter System that helps reduce the risk and severity of accidents by adjusting the maximum speed, the Kalmar Reverse Warning camera system that minimizes the risk of accidents and damage when reversing and additional lighting to improve visibility.

Having a reliable service partner is critical for our business

This is the first order for Kalmar's new empty container handler, which extends the range to cover all empty container handling needs by including an 11-ton lifting capacity for both single and double stacking in five different stacking heights. 

The Kalmar Gloria Reachstackers as well as the Empty Container Handlers are built on the proven Generation G platform. This ensures easier maintenance and provides an unprecedentedly comfortable working environment for the drivers.

Ron de Roo, Owner, DR Depots: “Kalmar machines have an excellent reputation for high quality, and this is backed up by the superb service we have received from Feyter Forklift Services. Having a reliable service partner is critical for our business, and these new machines will also help us address the growth in throughput at our Rotterdam and Antwerp depots.”
