The port technology solutions offered by Cargotec are internationally recognized as the leading models for container handling. Cargotec has concentrated on improving the overall service levels and efficiency while simultaneously cutting operational costs. Sustainability and energy efficiency has been another main focus in the development work of the company.
Cargotec's Kalmar products are the top market leaders in terminals and ports all over the world where containers are handled by ship-to-shore cranes, reach stackers, yard cranes, empty container handlers, shuttle carriers, straddle carriers and terminal carriers. Cargotec's spreaders are leaders in the market in each segment of the crane spreader market too: from ship-to-shore to yard to mobile harbour operations.
There has been an increasing demand to move traffic from rail to roads, other modes of transport and barge applications. In addition to conventional terminals and ports, the overall need to develop new machines has been a focus of the company. Traffic must be transfered from roads to rail, barge and other modes because of the fact the existing road infrastructure could not handle the increasing level of traffic. Environmental reasons for these means of transport also come into play. In the future, more intermodal terminals would be developed in the future.
Efficient operations in the terminals require machinery for handling containers, swop bodies and trailers. The intermodal operations machinery provided by Cargotec includes long and normal wheelbase reach stackers, RMG cranes, RTG cranes distribution tractors, shuttle and straddle carriers and shuttle carriers.
Customers are provided with a huge range of other services, along with port equipment solutions and technical support. For instance, Cargotec's Port Optimizer simulation tool allows clients to analyze which machine and handling systems are needed in existing or new terminals. The company provides a global service and sales network to be able to help their customers solve issues in a network that spans more than 120 nations. Cargotec brings their solutions close to the client in all locations in order to be sure they have the solutions their clients require.
Regardless of the environment and particular applications you work within, Cargotec Kalmar provides a lot of great solutions to help you figure out these issues. Their different kinds of equipment would allow you to complete your tasks in an effective, safe and timely way.
