Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has secured a large order to supply Brazilian equipment leasing service provider Brasmaq Portuaria (Brasmaq) with a total of 21 Kalmar Essential reachstackers. An order for four machines was booked in Cargotec's Q3 2023 order intake and an order for a further 17 machines was booked in Cargotec's Q4 2023 order intake. The first batch of four reachstackers will be delivered by the end of Q4 2023, with the second batch of 17 scheduled for delivery during Q1 2024.
