The existing fleet at STI includes approximately 25 Ottawa terminal tractors, 11 of which are Ottawa T2 units.
SAAM Group is the four-largest port operator in South America, with a network consisting of ten ports in six countries.
The company also has operations in Mexico, the United States, Colombia, Ecuador, and Costa Rica.
Delivery will take place Q4 2021.
Martin dos Santos, Sales Representative, Kalmar Latin America, said, “We are very pleased to have secured a repeat order from SAAM Group for the Kalmar Ottawa T2 terminal tractor as it is a reflection of their confidence in our high-quality equipment.”
The Kalmar Ottawa T2 Terminal Tractor 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.
