Kalmar to deliver 60 Ottawa T2 terminal tractors to Rail Management Services in USA


Kalmar, part of Cargotec, will deliver 60 Kalmar Ottawa T2 off-highway terminal tractors to Rail Management Services in USA. The order has been booked into Cargotec's 2015 third quarter order intake and the deliveries will run into early 2016.

Ed Morgenthaler, Vice President of Rail Management Services said: "We provide quality service to railroads and want to ensure the safety of our employees and the environment. We chose Kalmar Ottawa terminal tractors because of their consistent reliability, availability of original parts as well as their competitive pricing. The T2s galvanized chassis meets the tough load demands in our terminals and provide more strength, better protection and less maintenance to the equipment."

Rail Management Services operates in 38 rail terminals throughout the USA. The company has purchased altogether 160 Kalmar Ottawa units over the past three years, including the latest order of 60 terminal tractors.

Tom Spizzirri, Regional Sales Manager, Mobile Equipment, Kalmar Americas said: "We are happy that Rail Management Services has chosen our equipment again. The reliable, driver focused design, ergonomic cabin, improved powertrain efficiency and modular construction of the Kalmar Ottawa T2 terminal tractors enables our customers to achieve optimised operational performance and reduced lifetime cost of ownership for their equipment.

Kalmar Ottawa T2 terminal tractors are the gold standard in trailer moving solutions for warehouse and distribution operations, ports, and rail terminals. They offer excellent durability, operator comfort, service ease, and boast the latest generation engines.  Kalmar has sold over 2500 Kalmar Ottawa T2's since their introduction to the market in 2014.
