The company, part of the Finnish Cargotec, has been awarded a full outsourcing contract for maintenance activities at Yilport's sea and inland facilities in Sweden.
Yilport currently operates over 70 different types of cargo handling equipment from several separate brands across the seaport in Gävle and at its Stockholm Nord inland terminal.
The Kalmar Care service agreement covers equipment, such as container and mobile harbour cranes, reachstackers, forklift trucks, terminal tractors, and wheel loaders. The deal includes a fixed-price maintenance coverage for both rental and owned equipment, as well as 24/7 on-call coverage, with invoicing based on time and materials used. The agreement will give Yliport access to skilled maintenance expertise and flexible staffing options, too.
"We are delighted to have entered into this agreement with Kalmar, who have become our trusted partner in the Nordics. Kalmar Care offers value for money and flexibility in terms of staffing and service levels, and will help us improve the safety and transparency of our maintenance operations," Eryn Dinyovszky, Nordic Regional General Manager, Yilport, commented.
Karri Keskinen, Director, Service Contracts, Kalmar, also said, "This agreement is a natural continuation of our highly fruitful partnership with Yilport in the Nordic region - and a demonstration of Kalmar's ability to support customers with complex maintenance needs. By combining our world-class maintenance expertise and flexible approach, we can help Yilport take their service operations to the next level by helping them improve reliability, reduce total cost of ownership and equipment downtime, as well as enhance the safety of their operations."
