Cargotec as an investment

Why invest in Cargotec?

Watch a short video

Cargotec is a technology leader with strong market positions in all our business areas Kalmar, Hiab and MacGregor. We have leading brands in markets with long term growth potential. Several megatrends support our businesses.

Our strategy breakthrough objectives are sustainability and profitable growth. Our vision is to become the global leader in sustainable cargo flow.

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.
