Experience enables better solutions
Kalmar is the world’s leading manufacturer of terminal tractors, delivering more than 60,000 units globally over the years. Our extensive experience, in-depth technological expertise, innovative R&D, and close co-operation with customers have all been reflected in developing distribution tractors. Every detail in the machine has been carefully planned to improve productivity and make better use of yard space in the distribution terminal. Compared to conventional over-the-road trucks – often used in distribution terminals – purpose-built tractors can turn around trailers at least three times as quickly, according to a survey that Kalmar has undertaken in co-operation with its customers.
Thanks to its simple and innovative design, the Kalmar distribution tractor is a very cost-effective solution. The machine has been developed especially to move trailers over short distances. As operators face ever-rising fuel costs, Kalmar has engineered distribution tractors to feature engines with low fuel consumption and minimal harmful emissions.
