Kalmar has received an order for 93 new terminal tractors for container handling from the Port of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP), Malaysia.
Deliveries of the new €5m order, which was booked in Kalmar’s parent company Cargotec 2016 third quarter order intake, will start by the end of December this year.
Kalmar’s 4×2 medium terminal tractors, which have a gross combined weight of 70 tonnes, were manufactured in Shanghai, China, with a design specially optimised for the Asian market.
The purchase by PTP, which is a long-term partner of the company, represents Kalmar’s largest terminal tractor order to date in Malaysia.
PTP, which is Malaysia’s largest container terminal, recorded a total throughput of 9.17m teu in 2015, a 7% an increase of 7% over 2014.
Colin Cen, Sales Support Manager of KalmarAPAC, said: “Our aim is to help PTP to improve the efficiency of their every move and lower their operating costs with our high quality terminal tractors. Our factory in Shanghai is fully committed and working at full speed to deliver the ordered machines on time as promised.”
