Why invest in Cargotec?Watch a short video
Cargotec is a technology leader with strong market positions in all business areas, Kalmar, Hiab and MacGregor. We have leading brands in markets with long term growth potential and several megatrends, such as urbanisation and growing middle class, support our businesses.
Our aim is to transform from an equipment provider into a leader in intelligent cargo handling. We will achieve this by focusing on our four strategic must-win battles: customer centricity, services, digitalisation and productivity.
Sustainability is a great business prospect for Cargotec as the inefficiencies in the industry are clear. Only the moving of empty containers cause 19 million CO2 equivalent tonnes annually while some calculations show that the inefficiencies in cargo handling chain cause EUR 17 billion costs to the industry. We see the need for increasing efficiency in the industry as a major business potential, while at the same time it means decreasing emissions. The future growth in our business comes from increasing demands for operational efficiency, the proliferation of lifetime solutions and from increasing cargo volumes.
On the other hand, we need to ensure transparent and fair corporate governance, efficient environmental and health&safety management practices, efficient non-compliance programme and clear supplier management processes to have a license to operate in a more sustainability-driven market.
For Cargotec, the willingness to increase more sustainable cargo flow is not only a sentence. We have created a product group which demonstrates the solutions which can benefit customers’ operational, emissions or resource efficiency. In environmental industries, our products and solutions can enhance the industry efficiency. Increased growth in offering for eco-efficiency is driven by R&D and digitalisation investments.
Customers benefit from using our products and solutions as they enable
Cargotec’s eco-efficiency product group sales during 2019 was about 21 (2018: 21) percent of the total sales.
Cargotec has focused on the safety of its own operations and products and has set clear targets for the safety performance. There has been good development and we continue to focus on safety improvement programmes and actions across the organisation.
We monitor our sustainability performance closely on various areas and set annual sustainability targets to ensure development. You can read more about our targets from Our sustainability work and targets section.
