Kalmar will supply Servicios Portuarios Puerto De Algeciras, S.A (SPPA) with five units of the T2i terminal tractor for its operations at the Port of Algeciras.

Delivery is scheduled for the early part of Q4 2021.

The order includes the refurbishment of five existing Kalmar tractors operated by SPPA.

The T2i terminal tractors are supplied as a complete package including a two-year/6,000 hour standard warranty, a seven-year/10,000 hour extended warranty for the chassis.

The deal also includes two years of free access to Kalmar Insight – a performance management tool that turns fleet data into actionable insights.

José Galiano, CEO, SPPA, said, “Our relationship with Kalmar goes back many years, and their reliable terminal tractor solutions have been at the heart of our fleet since we began operations.

“The T2i terminal tractor package will allow us to provide our drivers with a more comfortable and productive working environment, which in turn will improve the efficiency and quality of the service we provide to our customers.”    

SPPA began operations in 2013 in the Port of Algeciras as a stevedoring company for ro-ro traffic in the Strait of Gibraltar.

Today the company handles a wide variety of cargo including fruit and vegetables, vehicles, textiles, general cargo and turbine components for wind farms.

SPPA’s current equipment fleet includes approximately 30 Kalmar terminal tractors of various models.

Dave Patterson, Vice President, South and West Europe, Kalmar, added, “The Kalmar T2i is a clear demonstration of our commitment to continuously develop our equipment designs and service solutions that enhance our customers’ operations and provide them with peace of mind.

“We are delighted to be able to extend our collaboration with SPPA with the conclusion of this order.”
