Kalmar strategy

There are five key areas where Kalmar makes a real difference in what it offers to customers:

Automation and integration


High quality and innovative products

Closeness to customers

Project business competence


Strong foundations for success

Automation and services are the spearheads of Kalmar’s strategy, while the foundations of our offering are high-quality and innovative products. We succeed by being close to our customers and building long-term relationships with them.

Our global sales and service network – the most extensive in the container-handling industry  – makes this possible. In addition, we continuously invest in our employees and project business competencies.


We drive innovation. We honor our long heritage of innovation, which makes us a global forerunner and the benchmark for the industry. We continue to drive our industry forward by focusing on our customers’ ultimate business needs: how to move cargo in the most efficient way.


We deliver on our promises.  We are a committed business partner and colleague, who takes responsibility and never walks away.


We do it together. Our customers’ success is our success. We believe that the greatest results can be achieved only by being open and working together with our customers, partners, and colleagues.


We provide life-long care. We contribute to our customers’ long-term success for the entire lifetime of our products and solutions. We anticipate our customers’ needs and proactively support their operations whenever and wherever needed.


We have a single focus in regard to our customers, and that is helping them to improve their productivity. This is the reason why we exist and what we strive for in everything we do.



Our vision is to be our customers’ preferred business partner. We work in close collaboration with our customers, even when they operate a different brand of equipment or terminal operating system.
