CARGOTEC CORPORATION, PRESS RELEASE, 28 MAY 2015 AT 10 AM (EEST)
Kalmar, part of Cargotec, will introduce yet another port industry first during the upcoming TOC Europe exhibition in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. On 9 June, ONE is coming.
Automation is widely accepted as the way towards improved productivity, safety and competitiveness in today's container terminals. However, it is often perceived as a difficult task that requires terminal operators to integrate multiple complex systems.
"We believe that the port industry is at the start of the next big wave of automation. Kalmar and Navis, as global technology leaders in this field, are strongly contributing to this transformation and addressing the industry's challenges. We are applying our experience and expertise in partnership with the terminals to help them realise their full potential," says Olli Isotalo, President of Kalmar.
Kalmar is the forerunner in terminal automation with several industry firsts in this area and major recent references from automated container terminal projects worldwide.
If you want to experience our unique solution for optimising business performance, join the launch at TOC Europe on 9 June at 12.30 at Kalmar booth B40. You can also follow the launch on Twitter @kalmarglobal.
