Kalmar, part of Cargotec, will supply Maldives Ports Limited (MPL) with three of its T2i terminal tractors.
The order was booked in Cargotec’s 2022 Q2 order intake, with delivery scheduled for early Q1 2023.
The company said the order also includes two years of access to Kalmar Insight, a performance management tool.
“We are proud to continue our partnership with MPL and delighted that they have again chosen our proven terminal tractor platform to enhance their equipment fleet,” said Calvin Chong, Senior Sales Engineer, Kalmar.

MPL manages and operates Malé Commercial Harbour, the main port in the Maldives, and three regional ports. Its current fleet includes five Kalmar TL2 and three Kalmar Ottawa terminal tractors.
