Green terminal tractors for Dutch logistics firm
Kalmar is to supply T2 terminal tractors to a leading Dutch logistics operator which will enable it to achieve both a sustainable increase in productivity and make its vehicle fleet more environmentally friendly.
The four terminal tractors ordered by St. van den Brink BV in the Netherlands will be used to shunt trailers along the two-kilometre route between the Ahold distribution centre and the Kuehne + Nagel distribution centre in Zaandam.
“The new vehicles offer excellent reliability and will be important in helping us to reduce turnaround times and increase our haulage volumes,” said Sander Jansen, fleet manager, St. van den Brink.
John Schut, sales manager, mobile equipment, Kalmar Netherlands said that Kalmar’s ability to offer a power train that complied with the EU's strictest emissions standards was an important factor for St. van den Brink.
St. van den Brink is a family-owned logistics operator with a strong focus on sustainability which has previously been awarded a Lean and Green Star by the Climate Neutral Group in recognition of its success in reducing CO2 emissions by 20%.
The company supplies customers across the Netherlands with a full range of transport services, including chilled and frozen as well as bulk goods transport.
Its new Kalmar T2 terminal tractors will be equipped with Volvo Tier4F engines that meet the EU's strictest Stage 4 emissions standards, as well as double fuel tanks to reduce operational downtime.
