Cargotec's port technology solutions have been globally recognized container handler models. Cargotec has focused on cutting operational expenses while simultaneously enhancing the overall efficiency and service levels. Sustainability as well as energy efficiency has been another main focus in the development work of the company.
Kalmar products by Cargotec are leading the market for terminals and ports all around the globe where container handlers utilize empty container handlers, yard cranes, reach stackers, ship-to-shore cranes, 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 a demand for better movement along rail to roads and other transport means such as barge applications. The company focus has been to develop new machines to assist the conventional ports and terminals. Traffic must be moved from roads to rail, barge and other modes due to the fact the existing road infrastructure is unable to deal with the increasing level of traffic. Environmental reasons for these means of transport also come into play. Eventually, more intermodal terminals will be developed in the future.
Efficient operations in the terminals require machines for handling containers, swop bodies and trailers. The intermodal operations machinery provided by Cargotec consists of RMG cranes, normal and long wheelbase reach stackers, RTG cranes distribution tractors, shuttle and straddle carriers and shuttle carriers.
In addition to add technical support and port equipment solutions, clients offer a wide variety of other services. Cargotec's Port Optimizer simulation tool for instance has been designed to allow clients to better analyze the machinery and handling systems which are needed for both new and currently existing terminals. The company provides a global service and sales network in order to help their clients solve problems in a network that spans over 120 nations. Cargotec brings their solutions near the customer in all places so as to be certain they have the solutions their customers need.
Regardless of the environment and specific applications you work within, Cargotec Kalmar provides many great solutions to help you figure out these issues. Their broad range of equipment will enable you to complete your jobs in an effective, safe and timely way.
