Cargotec's port technology solutions have been internationally recognized container handler units. The company has concentrated on cutting operational costs while simultaneously enhancing the overall service levels and efficiency. Energy efficiency as well as sustainability has been another main focus in the development work of the company.
Cargotec's Kalmar products are the top market leaders within ports and terminals all around the world where containers are handled by empty container handlers, yard cranes, ship-to-shore cranes, reach stackers, straddle carriers, terminal carriers and shuttle carriers. Cargotec's spreaders are leaders in the market in each and every segment of the crane spreader market as well: from mobile harbour to ship-to-shore to yard operations.
There has been an increasing demand to move traffic from rail to roads, other means of transport and barge applications. In addition to conventional ports and terminals, the overall requirement to develop new equipment has been a focus of the company. Traffic should be moved from roads to rail, barge and other means due to the fact the existing road infrastructure could not deal with the increasing level of traffic. Environmental reasons for these modes of transport also come into play. In the future, more intermodal terminals would be developed in the future.
Efficient operations in the terminals need equipment for handling trailers, containers and swop bodies. The intermodal operations machine provided by Cargotec consists of RMG cranes, long and normal wheelbase reach stackers, straddle and shuttle carriers, RTG cranes distribution tractors and shuttle carriers.
Clients are offered a wide variety of other services, in combination with port equipment solutions and technical support. Like for example, Cargotec's Port Optimizer simulation tool allows clients to analyze which machine and handling systems are required in new or existing terminals. The company offers a global service and sales network to be able to help their customers solve issues in a network that spans over 120 countries. Cargotec brings their solutions close to the customer in all locations so as to be sure they have the solutions their clients need.
