Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has concluded an agreement with global multi-metals business Nyrstar to supply three heavy terminal tractors for the company’s Australian operations. The order was booked in Cargotec’s Q2 order intake with delivery scheduled for Q4 2020 and follows an earlier order for two reachstackers which will be delivered in Q2 2020.
