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.

“Our terminal tractors are known for their high uptime, their ability to operate in even the harshest conditions and the excellent visibility they offer for drivers, which helps to increase safety in demanding container-handling operations.”

“Additionally, they continue to provide our vehicle and equipment operators with comprehensive training programmes, which ensure safe and cost-efficient operation of our terminal resources.”
