CARGOTEC CORPORATION, TRADE PRESS RELEASE, 11 MARCH 2019 AT NOON (EET)
Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has concluded an agreement to supply Servicios Logisticos Portuarios SLP, a leading cargo-handling operator at the Port of Bilbao, Spain with a total of five heavy-duty forklift trucks. The order was booked in Cargotec's 2019 Q1 order intake, with delivery scheduled to be completed early in Q3 of 2019.
