Kalmar has received a repeat order for shuttle carriers to APM Terminals (APMT) in Tangier, Morocco.
APMT has selected Kalmar to deliver 23 additional units – manually-driven, semi-automated hybrid shuttle carriers.
The latest batch of shuttles are in support of APM Terminals’ expansion of their newest facility, TM2.
The units to be delivered will be integrated into the Terminal Operation System via KalmarOne software, complemented by professional services, maintenance and support.
The first phase of the project consisted of 42 shuttle carriers between 2016 and 2020.
Jack Craig, Vice President, Global Head of Operations at APMT, commented: “We are pleased with our partnership with Kalmar in developing this significant infrastructure and operational change at TM2.
“Together, we have introduced a fleet of semi-automated equipment that will ensure high productivity in a sustainable manner as part of our terminal modernisation initiatives. Kalmar’s hybrid AutoStrad solution will help us reduce CO2 emissions.”
Antti Kaunonen, President, Kalmar Automation Solutions, added: “We are proud of our continued collaboration with the APM Terminals in Tangier. The solution combines our industry-leading hybrid technology helping to reduce CO2 emissions.”
In addition, as has been planned since 2019, APM Terminals has also completed an order for 62 Kalmar Hybrid AutoStrads for its Los Angeles facility.
This week Kalmar, part of Cargotec, received an order for three Kalmar Eco Reachstackers from Yantai Port, China – the first ever to be delivered in the North China region.
