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.
Commenting on this investment, Budd Algeria expressed hope that this will reduce claims against ship owners and sea carriers for the damage caused to cargo by rough handling, an all-too common event in Algerian ports.
