The first deliveries are three new Kalmar Front End Loaders (FELS) that arrived by sea from Sweden at the Fairview Cove container terminal operated by competitor Cerescorp. Atlantic Container Line, which includes Gothenburg in its port calls, delivered the units to Halifax and Atlantic Tiltload Ltd trucked them to Halterm.
They appear to be Kalmar's biggest model, called the DCF 520 which has a lifting capacity of 52 tonnes.
