Cargotec Gets Major Order from DPWorld Brisbane
Cargotec receives an order to deliver 14 Kalmar automatic stackingcranes & 14 Kalmar one-over-one shuttle carriers to DP World Brisbane Pty.
The equipment will be taken into use at the Port of Brisbane. DP World Brisbane will also be using Navis Sparcs N4 TOS in their Brisbane terminal expansion. Deliveries of the equipment are scheduled for 2013 and early 2014. The parties have agreed not to disclose the transaction value.
"The Port of Brisbane is the fastest growing port in Australia and is therefore of key significance to DP World. Cargotec's package delivery of cranes and the ease of integration with Navis terminal automation solution, combined with strong local service support were the main factors that enabled negotiations to achieve such positive results," says Peter McLean, Vice President, Australia and New Zealand. "We will also continue to support DP World with parts and service from our Brisbane service centre to ensure maximum performance of the equipment."
"We are expanding our terminal in Brisbane through the development of new yard area, and decided to opt for automatic stacking cranes and manual shuttle carriers to maximise the capacity and efficiency, focused on the growing needs of our customers," says Mark Hulme, Director and General Manager, DP World Brisbane.
