Delca Logistics was founded in 2000 and operates a river terminal in Wielsbeke, in the Belgian province of West Flanders. The company’s current fleet includes three Kalmar Gloria reachstackers.

The Kalmar Super Gloria is the largest reachstacker in the Kalmar product range. It is designed for demanding lifting applications and features a long wheelbase to provide maximum stability. The machine delivered to Delca will be used at the Wielsbeke terminal to load and unload cargo from ships. In yard mode the machine will be capable of stacking standard and high containers five-high, while in barge mode it will be capable of stacking four container rows deep and three to four high depending on tide water levels. It will be fitted with an engine that meets EU Stage V emission standards and a camera system on the counterweight to increase the safety of lifting and lowering operations.
