Kalmar to Deliver 93 Terminal Tractors to Port of Tanjung Pelepas

Kalmar has extended its long cooperation with Port of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP) in Malaysia by providing them with 93 terminal tractors for container handling. The approximate EUR 5 million purchase is scheduled for the first deliveries to start this December.

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.

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. Our factory in Shanghai is fully committed and working at full speed to deliver the ordered machines on time as promised. This is our largest terminal tractor order to date in Malaysia.”
