Kalmar Ottawa reaches milestone with 75,000th unit


Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has achieved another significant milestone for its Ottawa terminal tractors with the completion of its 75,000th unit.

The T2 terminal tractor rolled off the production line at Kalmar’s manufacturing facility in Ottawa, Kansas, ready for delivery to customer Lazer Spot Yard Management Inc.

Doug Queen, Vice President of Solution Sales at Kalmar Ottawa Terminal Tractors, said: “We are delighted to present our 75,000th unit to Lazer Spot.

“The support of great dealers like Briggs Equipment and customers like Lazer Spot is what has made the Kalmar Ottawa product such a huge success over the years. We look forward to what the future holds for our partnerships with both organisations,

Ben Hecht, Director of Terminal Tractors at Briggs Equipment, said this is “a significant achievement” for all involved, and a demonstration of the high esteem in which the Kalmar Ottawa brand is held among leading port, intermodal and distribution operators around the world.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic it was not possible to host the customer at the site for a celebratory handover ceremony. The ceremony is planned to take place later this year when the visit can be safely accommodated.

The Kalmar Ottawa T2 Terminal Tractor sets the standard for world-class trailer handling solutions for port, intermodal and distribution customers. Available in DOT/EPA-certified and off-road configurations, the T2 is a purpose-built truck featuring an ergonomic cab design, fast fifth-wheel lifting and easy-access service points to speed up routine checks and servicing.

In December 2020 PTI spoke to Kalmar about how it has adapted to changing industry demands during the COVID-19 pandemic.
