The equipment was transported from the main factory in Lidhult, Sweden, with final assembly and engineering completed upon arrival at the Port of Felixstowe by Kalmar engineers. Following staff training and familiarisation, the vehicles were thoroughly tested before being declared fit for service.
The new vehicles are equipped with Volvo TAD760VE engines and are able to stack five 9`6” containers high, with a total weight lift capacity of nine tonnes. These features will allow for faster turnaround times and greater manoeuvrability of containers around the Port.
Two further empty container handlers are also due for delivery at the beginning of September.
