Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has signed a contract with SPT Services Sdn Bhd, for an order of 41 units of TL2 terminal tractors.
The machines will be delivered to the Solid Product Jetty (SPJ) located in Pengerang Johor, run by SPT, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Johor Port Berhad.
The semi-trailers will move containers within the SPJ and Rapid warehouses to support the transportation of petrochemical downstream products such as polymers mainly for the export market.
Shahrull Allam Shah bin Abdul Halim, director of SPT Services Sdn. Bhd and chief executive of Johor Port Berhad, said: “As port operators, we have to stay vigilant towards upholding health, safety, security and environmental standards in the jetty’s daily operations.
He added that the units on order meet “our technical requirements” while noting that Kalmar in Malaysia “has performed very well including its after sales services”.
“The overall solution offered provides us great value for the money,” he stated.
The units on order are designed to offer customers in the Asia-Pacific region a value-based choice of the high quality, reliable equipment, noted Kalmar.
The order was booked into Cargotec’s 2018 fourth quarter order intake and scheduled for delivery in December of 2018.
