Enhancing our customers' sustainability
We support sustainable development by providing our customers with sustainable solutions. Our solutions help customers reduce fuel consumption and emissions, optimise cargo flows and cut overall operational costs as well as improve safety and equipment availability.
For example, the new Kalmar heavy-range electric forklift generates zero emissions and cuts energy costs by 75 per cent compared to an equivalent diesel forklift. Kalmar hybrid straddle and shuttle carriers consume up to 40 per cent less fuel and reduce annual carbon dioxide emissions by over 50 tons per year per machine when compared to traditional diesel-electric designs. Automation also brings energy savings, as unmanned machines do not need lighting to operate. A fully automated, 40-hectare terminal has reported annual cost savings of EUR 65,000 through eliminating lighting alone. The same customer has reported that compensations for work-related injuries were reduced by two-thirds over the past decade after moving to automation.
We provide training and maintenance services that extend the lifespan of equipment, reduce its impact on the environment and ensure safe usage.
