Cargotec as an Employer

At Cargotec, we create world-class technologies and offer solutions that enable efficient cargo flows around the globe. Cargotec's business areas Kalmar, Hiab, and MacGregor are all pioneers in their fields. Through their unique position in ports, on roads, and at sea, they optimise global cargo flows and create sustainable customer value. In order to maintain the high quality, we need ambitious and motivated employees with different areas of expertise.

Cargotec is a global company that has operations in about 100 countries. At the end of 2023, around 11,400 people worked at Cargotec. We offer a variety of different career possibilities for different backgrounds and ambitions, so whatever your passion is, we may just have the job for you! We want to bring in new expertise and fresh ideas, while providing our existing employees with new and interesting career opportunities.


We want to keep our people engaged and motivated. To us, leadership is the key to making Cargotec a better place to work for, and it also brings better business results. We believe that with good team climates we reach great results. Our leadership approach is crystallised in three themes: Lead with purpose, Empower for performance, and Collaborate to win. These themes are applied throughout the whole organisation and across national boundaries - because everyone has the right to work in a great climate. Also, as a leader, you will get the concrete tools to develop and challenge yourself in whole new ways.

Personal development

We want every employee to feel that they are doing a meaningful job. Thus, we want to make sure that the tasks and targets of each employee are linked with the company strategy. To ensure this, line managers annually set and review personal targets with each team member. In addition to these individual discussions, we encourage teams to discuss their performance, roles, and work climate continuously. Every employee has their own personal development plan, which ensures that employee development always stays on the agenda as a top priority.

What do you think?

At Cargotec, we want to know what our people think! In our annual Compass engagement survey, all employees are encouraged to share their thoughts on a wide range of topics, from work-life balance to leadership and team climate. Our business areas follow up on any findings that point to development needs.


We work closely with our customers and partners across language, cultural, and professional barriers. In all our activities, we are committed to full compliance with our Code of Conduct, as well as applicable national and international laws and regulations.
