What a whopper!

When Marexport at Felixstowe needed an additional operator for their 40 Tonne Kalmar Top Loader;  Loretta Gunter,  who works in the traffic office, was quick to volunteer.

Having driven container lorries for several years, Loretta had often observed these giants in action and knew the basics.

After just 3 days of intensive one to one training, she got to grips with the machine and was soon loading, unloading and stacking both 20 and 40 foot containers like an expert.

Loretta said “although I will not be on the Kalmar full time, it will make a nice change to get out of the office and help out from time to time when the regular operator is on holiday.”
