Karri Keskinen, Head of Global Sales, Horizontal Transportation, Kalmar, said: “Kalmar and CMA Terminals have a long and successful history of collaboration.

“We are proud that they have selected our proven hybrid straddle carrier solution – which can cut fuel consumption by up to 40 per cent compared to equivalent diesel-powered machines – to support them with their transition to more eco-efficient cargo-handling operations.”

In December 2023, Kalmar concluded an agreement with long-term Brazilian customer, Super Terminais, to supply a wide variety of equipment and services for its Manaus terminal in northern Brazil.

More recently, Kalmar struck a deal with Terminal Cuenca del Plata S.A. (TCP) to supply 20 Kalmar hybrid straddle carriers for deployment at the terminal in the Port of Montevideo, Uruguay.
