Cargotec has secured an order from one of Brazil's leading logistics operations to deliver 13 Kalmar forklift trucks.
Purchased by Vix Logistica, the nine DCF300 and four DCF420 models are scheduled for delivery in September.
The order follows a further three Kalmar DCF450-12 lift trucks delivered in January of this year. These units are fitted with magnetics attachments and have been successfully used to handle 36-tonne steel slabs.
Cargotec Brazil already holds a service agreement with Vix Logistica. Two of its technicians work full time at the company and are responsible for the maintenance of the three existing Kalmar models.
Following the latest purchase, it is expected that further technicians will be added to the agreement.
— Brazil is one of the fastest growing forklift truck markets in the world and constitutes a key focus for Cargotec's business development plans, said Thomas Malmborg, Vice President, Forklift Trucks at Cargotec.
— We are delighted to secure this deal - one of our largest ever to Brazil - with such a major player in its logistics sector.
Kalmar F generation heavy-duty lift trucks have lifting capacities ranging from 18 to 52 tonnes.
