Kalmar signed an agreement with Gulftainer Lebanon SAL to supply six Kalmar T2 terminal tractors and one Kalmar DCF80-45E7 empty container handler. The order was booked in Cargotec's 2016 third quarter order intake and the first delivery will take place in October 2016. The rest of the order will be delivered during the first quarter of 2017.

The new equipment will be delivered to the Port of Tripoli in Lebanon.

Mr. Amatouri, Board President at Gulftainer Lebanon, says: "As well as recognising the overall quality of Kalmar equipment, we appreciated that Kalmar responded promptly to all our requests. With this order we anticipate to reduce the equipment downtime at our terminal and look forward to a successful business relationship that is mutually beneficial for both parties."
