New Forklifts for Algerian Ports
Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has received an order for 25 forklift trucks from the Algerian port procurement company, Groupement d’Intérêt Commun des Entreprises Portuaires (GICEP). The forklifts will perform stevedoring operations at the ports of Algiers, Annabas, Mostaganem, Oran and Tenes.
