Cargotec's subsidiary Kalmar will deliver 708 terminal tractors of EUR 70 mln total worth to dealerships across USA, Canada, and Mexico.
The orders were received during the annual Dealer Meeting held in Bonita Springs, Florida, at the beginning of February.
"This year's Dealer Meeting was a great success. We made a record in orders received and surpassed our previous record of 512 units from 2015. We launched our Kalmar Ottawa T2 terminal tractor three years ago and since then, we have been consistently gaining market share especially in the Americas.
Today, our terminal tractor offering comprises a superior product, service, spare parts, and rental agreements supported by a dedicated team who has been contributing to this successful business since the beginning. This impressive result, coupled with the feedback received from the attendees, builds up our confidence in the North American market, and its economic outlook for 2017," Dan Pettersson, Kalmar's Senior Vice President, Mobile Equipment, commented.
