Kalmar has received orders for 10 diesel-electric straddle carriers from DP World's West Swanson Terminal in Melbourne, Australia. One order for five units was booked in Cargotec's 2015 fourth quarter order intake, and the other five units were booked in 2016 first quarter order intake. The machines will be delivered during the third quarter of 2016.
