Kalmar opens the door to a new era for logistics with Robotic Portfolio


Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has announced the introduction of the Kalmar Robotic Portfolio – a future range of intelligent, flexible and autonomous mobile equipment solutions designed to improve safety and eco-efficiency without compromising productivity.

The portfolio will consist of the Kalmar RoboTractor, RoboLifter, RoboStacker and RoboHandler, and prototypes currently being tested at different sites worldwide. Kalmar’s goal is to make automation and robotics technologies accessible to new customer segments, including distribution centres and heavy logistics in addition to ports and terminals. With the introduction of the new portfolio, Kalmar is enhancing its already extensive and well-established automation offering with autonomous, self-driven solutions capable of operating in mixed-traffic environments in the future.

With intelligence moved to equipment from central systems, robotised solutions don’t require heavy investment in infrastructure. In addition, their flexibility and scalability make them particularly suited to smaller equipment fleets. All the equipment in the Kalmar Robotic Portfolio will be built on a standardised platform, meaning it will be simple and cost-effective to deploy with the help of cloud technologies as well as being fully compatible with Kalmar automation solutions.

Lasse Eriksson, Vice President, Technology at Kalmar, said, “In our industry, someone loses their life on the job every five days. We want to help our customers to keep their people safe and reduce their impact on the environment with cutting-edge equipment solutions that make no compromises in terms of safety, sustainability and productivity. Our intelligent and flexible Robotic Portfolio is designed to be easy to deploy, maintain and scale for customers across a wide variety of segments. With this new portfolio, we are laying the foundations for a future driven by fully autonomous, unmanned material handling with zero accidents, zero emissions and maximum productivity. We are keen to continue the interactions with our customers and collaborate on pilot projects with customers who would benefit from these future solutions in their operations.”
