Cargotec's port technology solutions have been internationally recognized container handler models. Cargotec has focused on cutting operational expenses whilst simultaneously enhancing the overall service levels and efficiency. Energy efficiency and sustainability has been one more main focus in the development work of the company.
Cargotec's Kalmar products are the top market leaders in ports and terminals all over the globe where containers are handled by yard cranes, empty container handlers, ship-to-shore cranes, reach stackers, terminal carriers, shuttle carriers and straddle carriers. Cargotec's spreaders are leaders in the market in each 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 modes like barge applications. The company focus has been to develop new equipment to assist the conventional terminals and ports. Traffic must be transfered from roads to rail, barge and other modes due to the fact the existing road infrastructure could not deal with the increasing level of traffic. Environmental reasons for these means of transport also come into play. Eventually, more intermodal terminals would be developed in the future.
Efficient operations in the terminals need machines for handling containers, swop bodies and trailers. The intermodal operations machinery offered by Cargotec includes normal and long wheelbase reach stackers, RMG cranes, RTG cranes distribution tractors, shuttle and straddle carriers and shuttle carriers.
In addition to add port equipment solutions and technical support, customers provide a wide range of other services. Cargotec's Port Optimizer simulation tool for instance has been designed to allow customers to better analyze the machinery and handling systems which are needed for both new and currently existing terminals. The company offers a worldwide service and sales network in order to help their customers solve issues in a network that spans more than 120 countries. Cargotec brings their solutions close to the client in all locations in order to be certain they have the solutions their customers need.
Whatever particular applications you require to work within, regardless of the setting, Cargotec Kalmar offers a variety of solutions to help you figure it all out. Their different types of machinery would allow you to complete your jobs in an efficient, safe and timely manner.
