In addition to providing high-quality equipment to customers, Cargotec creates and distributes knowledge among its stakeholders and within the industry. With knowledge, we mean all the information, technological innovation and expertise Cargotec has and develops related to cargo and load handling solutions.
The positive impact of our solutions is founded in our R&D and innovation efforts: this is where new knowledge is created. Innovation and R&D lie at the heart of realising our vision of becoming the global leader in sustainable cargo flow.
