Offering for eco-efficiency; evaluation process
Cargotec’s business areas’ products and solutions that contribute to eco-efficiency of the usage phase, have been identified. The products and solutions in the portfolio have been categorised as follows, according to the benefits they enable:
Cargotec has clear criteria for placing products and solutions into each of these categories. The business area R&D executives participate in the selection process. To ensure that the portfolio is in tune with rapidly developing technology and growing awareness of environmental impact, the portfolio criteria is evaluated annually and approved by Cargotec’s CEO and Senior Vice President, Strategy. The whole offering was audited externally during 2017.
Cargotec’s offering includes software, terminal operating systems, and cargo stowage systems that increase visibility, identify potential inefficiencies and help plan holistic improvements to increase the efficiency of resources used in cargo handling.
For example, Kalmar’s automated terminal solutions optimise the capacity of cargo handling equipment by decreasing inefficient moves and operations in the cargo handling chain. MacGregor’s PlusPartner concept plans the optimal design of a ship to carry more cargo. It ensures that the total capacity of the ship is utilised and decreases the amount of unnecessary back and forth piloting. Optimally balanced containers also require less ballast water.
