Kalmar to service Swedish Yilport terminals

Kalmar has secured a contract for maintenance work at Yilport’s three Swedish cargo terminals: two in Gävle and one in Stockholm.

The flexible Kalmar Care agreement covers maintaining terminal equipment such as container cranes and reach-stackers, and includes fixed-price maintenance coverage for both rental and owned equipment.

Kalmar will also offer 24/7 on-call coverage.

Eryn Dinyovszky, Nordic regional general manager at Yilport, said: “Kalmar Care offers value for money and flexibility in terms of staffing and service levels, and will help us improve the safety and transparency of our maintenance operations.”

The hope is that the agreement will also reduce operational downtime and increase efficiency at the terminals.

Yilport operates a container terminal and a multipurpose terminal in Gävle and an intermodal terminal north of Stockholm.

Kalmar first struck up a service contract with Yilport in 2016 when it became Yilport’s service partner for its terminal in Oslo, Norway.
