Are you on the right track to success?

Kalmar can help you find the optimal solution for your intermodal operations to maximise your capacity and throughput, driving your journey towards more intelligent and eco-efficient cargo handling. We can do this by providing a proven open automation platform, the broadest range of all-electric equipment and all the support you need, wherever and whenever you need it.

The right track to cargo handling.

With more and more cargo being transported inland, especially by rail, the intermodal segment is assuming an increasingly important role in the global logistics chain. For operators, success rests on maximising capacity and throughput – safely, smartly and with minimum impact on the environment – and ensuring a smooth transition between marine, road and rail transportation. 

This requires the optimal combination of eco-efficient equipment, intelligent automation and services and expert support – all areas where Kalmar is an industry leader.

We can help you achieve your business goals with a comprehensive range of electrically powered horizontal transportation and lifting equipment, a proven open automation platform that puts you in control, and all the expertise and support you need to optimise your operations and get maximum value from every square foot of space in your terminal.

The right track to more eco-efficient cargo handling.

Kalmar offers an extensive range of electrically powered equipment that produce zero emissions at source, exceeding current emission standards and substantially reducing your fuel bills at the same time. This range includes RMGs, RTGs, AGVs, Shuttles, Straddle Carriers, forklift trucks, a terminal tractor and an empty container handler.

You can also choose from a range of diesel powered equipment including reachstackers, cranes and horizontal transport that use eco-efficient technology to reduce fuel consumption by up to 40% in comparison to traditionally powered equipment.

In addition, there is a full range of eco-efficient solutions which can further help reduce your emissions across your business, from automating your processes to using the latest technology to help optimise every move you make.
