Shumani is the official distributor of Kalmar reach stackers and ECHs in South Africa and currently holds the biggest fleet of Kalmar port equipment in South Africa.

“It is with great pleasure to have Shumani handle our ECH requirements, as we have received impeccable service from them to date. For this reason, we trust them with our continued business,” says Liven Gounden, UCD Asset Manager.
