As Europes leading cargo handler,ECT demands equipment solutions that comply with the latest emissions standards without sacrificing performance and fuel efficiency. Already a long-term customer of Kalmar, and well aware of the superior environmental and productivity benefits offered by our solutions, ECT decided to upgrade its inland-terminal fleet with the latest-generation Kalmar equipment.
ECT's fleet upgrade comprised the purchase of 13 Kalmar reachstackers – DRF450-60S5 and DCF100-45E7 models – and four Kalmar DCF90-45E6 empty container handlers.
ECT's reachstackers feature a clean-running Volvo engine that delivers near-zero NOx and harmful particulate emissions without affecting capacity or productivity. The heavy-duty DRF 450-60S5 model chosen by ECT boasts a lifting capacity of 99,200 lbs., smooth automatic gear shifting, and smart operator controls.
