    Kalmar offers the widest range of heavy material handling equipment and services for ports, terminals, distribution centres, manufacturing and heavy logistics.


    Ports & Terminals

    The ports and terminals industry comprises both marine terminals and intermodal terminals, which are located inland. With increasing trade volumes and stricter environmental legislation, terminals are facing ever-greater pressure to expand their operations while simultaneously improving safety, sustainability and productivity.

    As a pioneer in both automation and eco-efficient equipment, Kalmar sets the industry benchmark for ports and container terminals. We offer straddle carriers, reachstackers, forklift trucks, empty container handlers, terminal tractors and crane spreaders, as well as spare parts and services for ports and terminals worldwide.



    With the high demand for e-commerce and increasing volumes in distribution centres, coupled with the simultaneous transition towards more eco-efficient and automated systems, the distribution and logistics industry is undergoing a significant transformation. Operators must ensure fast, reliable and safe delivery of goods to their customers, making uptime and fast turnaround times crucial factors for their business – all while keeping operating costs as low as possible.

    Kalmar terminal tractors are ideal for the distribution industry.



    Companies in the manufacturing industries, including metal, forestry and mining, have demanding equipment requirements, with machines often operating around the clock in multiple shifts and in challenging conditions. Therefore, ensuring uptime is a priority to maintain productivity levels. Kalmar reachstackers and forklift trucks address even the most challenging needs of customers and ensure maximised uptime.


    Heavy logistics

    Heavy logistics industries comprise customers in various industries, including wind, automotive, brick and concrete, waste and recycling, food and beverage, agriculture, chemical, fertiliser, and plastics. With its versatile solutions, such as reachstackers and forklift trucks, Kalmar meets the industries’ requirements for reliable lifting and moving equipment.
