Kalmar has received an order from Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA) for 11 diesel-electric straddle carriers.

This follows a similar order from HHLA in 2016 for nine Kalmar machines. 

The new straddle carriers will be used to transport containers from the port’s ship-to-shore cranes to the automated stacking cranes.

Jens Hansen, managing director of HHLA Container Terminal Burchardkai, said: “We’re facing increasing pressure to reduce operating costs and cut noise and emissions, so it's vital that our straddle carrier equipment helps us achieve these targets. With Kalmar, we know that we will get all this combined with excellent reliability and first-class support services."

HHLA has relied on Kalmar straddle carriers for many years to keep its daily operations running smoothly. Mr Hansen added: “We particularly appreciate the long-term reliability and proven performance of Kalmar equipment, as well as the local support services that help keep it working at its very best.”
