Part 1: Towards Carbon Neutral - Key takeaways from Green Chair LIVE
Kalmar experts and invited guests discuss ways for heavy industries to grow and prosper in a genuinely sustainable fashion
Safety is a key concern for terminal operators, and one of the key areas to address is applications in which heavy container handling equipment must operate in areas with mixed traffic or people. Equipment or cargo damage can lead to costly delays and disrupt operations.
Kalmar has reached a significant milestone in the development of its Robotic portfolio–with a successful pilot of its RoboTractor at customer site Coast Center Base (CCB) Mongstad (Norway). CCB is a busy facility that supplies conventional North Sea drill rigs, jack-up rigs, drill ships and other maritime equipment.
In early June, Finnish heavy equipment provider Visuri & Paavola received its tenth Kalmar forklift truck. For over 15 years, the company has relied on Kalmar for durable, driver-friendly equipment and stellar support from dedicated professionals.
Terminal tractors are the workhorses of every major warehouse distribution centre, moving trailers full of goods from loading dock to yard and back again. Since 1958, Kalmar’s Ottawa, Kansas plant has produced over 80,000 terminal tractor units, more than all competitors combined.
Kalmar has recently delivered two terminal tractors to the new Balticon depot in the Port of Gdańsk, Poland. The deal also includes a reachstacker and an empty container handler, which together will provide the specialist equipment necessary to efficiently operate the six-hectare storage and reloading yard.
