Kalmar to deliver 93 terminal tractors to long-standing customer PTP in Malaysia
Kalmar (part of Cargotec) has extended its long cooperation with Port of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP) in Malaysia by providing them with 93 terminal tractors for container handling. The approx. EUR 5 million purchase was booked in Cargotec's 2016 third quarter order intake, with first deliveries taking place in December 2016, the Company said in a press release.
PTP is Malaysia's largest container terminal and is currently ranked 18th in the Top Container Ports Ranking 2015. Last year, PTP continued to grow and expand its business in the region in spite of the gloomy global economic landscape by recording a total throughput of 9.17 million TEUs or an increase of 7% total growth as compared to 2014.
Kalmar 4x2 medium terminal tractors to be delivered to PTP are manufactured in Shanghai, China with the design and offering specially optimised for the Asian market. The PTP units have a gross combination weight of 70 tonnes and they will be used to handle containers.
Colin Cen, Sales Support Manager of Kalmar APAC says: "We are very pleased to cooperate with PTP. Our aim is to help PTP to improve the efficiency of their every move and lower their operating costs with our high quality terminal tractors.
