Cargotec's port technology solutions have been internationally recognized container handler units. Cargotec has concentrated on improving the overall service levels and efficiency whilst simultaneously cutting operational costs. Energy efficiency and sustainability has been another main focus in the company's development work.
Cargotec's Kalmar products are the top market leaders in terminals and ports all around the world where containers are handled by reach stackers, ship-to-shore cranes, empty container handlers, yard cranes, shuttle carriers, straddle carriers and terminal carriers. Cargotec's spreaders are leaders within the market in every segment of the crane spreader market too: 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 machinery to assist the conventional ports and terminals. Traffic should be transfered from roads to rail, barge and other modes because of 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. In the future, more intermodal terminals would be developed in the future.
In the terminals, efficient operations require equipment for handling trailers, containers and swop bodies. The intermodal operations machine offered by Cargotec consists of long and normal wheelbase reach stackers, RMG cranes, shuttle and straddle carriers, RTG cranes distribution tractors and shuttle carriers.
Customers are provided with a huge range of other services, along with technical support and port equipment solutions. For example, Cargotec's Port Optimizer simulation tool enables clients to analyze what equipment and handling systems are required in existing or new terminals. The company offers a worldwide sales and service network to be able to help their customers solve problems in a network that spans over 120 countries. Cargotec brings their solutions near the client in all locations in order to be certain they have the solutions their customers require.
