Cargotec's port technology solutions have been internationally recognized container handler models. The company has concentrated on improving the overall efficiency and service levels whilst simultaneously cutting operational costs. Sustainability and energy efficiency has been one more main focus in the company's development work.
Cargotec's Kalmar products are the top market leaders in terminals and ports all over the globe where containers are handled by yard cranes, empty container handlers, reach stackers, ship-to-shore cranes, straddle carriers, terminal carriers and shuttle carriers. Cargotec's spreaders are leaders within the market in every segment of the crane spreader market as well: from mobile harbour to ship-to-shore to yard operations.
There has been a demand for better movement along rail to roads and other transport means like barge applications. The company focus has been to develop new machinery to assist the conventional terminals and ports. Traffic has to be transfered from roads to rail, barge and other modes due to the fact the existing road infrastructure is unable to handle the increasing level of traffic. Environmental reasons for these modes of transport also come into play. In the future, more intermodal terminals will be developed in the future.
Efficient operations in the terminals require machinery for handling swop bodies, trailers and containers. The intermodal operations equipment provided by Cargotec includes long and normal wheelbase reach stackers, RMG cranes, straddle and shuttle carriers, RTG cranes distribution tractors and shuttle carriers.
In addition to add port equipment solutions and technical support, clients offer a wide range of other services. Cargotec's Port Optimizer simulation tool for instance has been designed to enable clients to better analyze the machine and handling systems which are required for both new and currently existing terminals. The company offers a worldwide service and sales network to be able to help their clients solve problems in a network which spans more than 120 nations. Cargotec brings their solutions near the client in all locations so as to be certain they have the solutions their clients need.
Regardless of the environment and particular applications you work within, Cargotec Kalmar offers a lot of great solutions to help you figure out these issues. Their wide variety of equipment would allow you to complete your jobs in a timely, effective and safe manner.
