The order comprises 12 forklift trucks with lifting capacities ranging from 10 to 32 tonnes, eight TRX182 terminal tractors, three reachstackers and one empty container handler. JSC Sea Port St Petersburg handled 11.8 million tons of cargoes in 2006, comprising metals, coal, chemical, timber and containers. The terminal operator has worked with Kalmar for more than 30 years.
