The pressure on today's container terminals is exceeding the wildest expectations. To increase terminal profits under these circumstances you have to increase productivity. One important factor is the driver performance.
Kalmar is since long known for leading the race in ergonomics and Kalmar's masted container handlers are no exception.
At Kalmar, the safety of people working with our machines is always at the top of our minds, which is why meeting global safety standards is important to us. The safety standard EN 1175:2020, which sets the electrical and electronic component standards for industrial trucks, has been updated to improve the safety of these machines while in operation, this update is valid from April 2023. All Kalmar counter balanced machines, including reachstackers, empty container handlers and forklifts have been updated to meet this new standard to ensure that working with a Kalmar machine is as safe as it can be.
