Port of Portland orders Kalmar reachstackers
The Port of Portland has ordered three DRF450-65S5 reachstackers from Sweden’s Kalmar Industries with an option for eight more. The units are scheduled for delivery in October.
After switching its operation from masted container handlers to reachstackers in 1999, Portland currently employs 16 Kalmar DRS4531-S5 reachstackers.
The Oregon port handled 214,484 TEUs in 2006, making it the 17th largest volume container port in the United States.
