Cargotec's port technology solutions have been globally recognized container handler models. Cargotec has focused on improving the overall efficiency and service levels while simultaneously cutting operational costs. Sustainability as well as energy efficiency 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 around the globe where containers are handled by empty container handlers, yard cranes, reach stackers, ship-to-shore cranes, shuttle carriers, straddle carriers and terminal carriers. Cargotec's spreaders are leaders within the market in each segment of the crane spreader market as well: from yard to mobile harbour to ship-to-shore operations.
There has been an increasing demand to move traffic from rail to roads, other modes of transport and barge applications. In addition to conventional ports and terminals, the overall need to develop new equipment has been a focus of the company. Traffic needs to be transfered from roads to rail, barge and other modes because of the fact the existing road infrastructure is unable to deal with 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 machines for handling trailers, containers and swop bodies. The intermodal operations machine offered by Cargotec consists of RMG cranes, normal and long wheelbase reach stackers, straddle and shuttle carriers, RTG cranes distribution tractors and shuttle carriers.
In addition to add port equipment solutions and technical support, clients 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 equipment and handling systems which are needed for both new and currently existing terminals. The company provides a worldwide sales and service network in order to help their customers solve problems in a network which 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 need.
