Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has secured orders for a total of 512 units of Kalmar Ottawa T2 terminal tractors in North America. The orders were received during the annual North American dealer meeting organised in Bonita Springs, Florida, on 28-30 January, 2015. The total value of orders is close to €40 million.
The new Kalmar Ottawa T2 terminal tractor was introduced to the North American market in February 2014. It was developed in close cooperation with dealers and their customers, resulting in superior performance, productivity and serviceability. The T2 has gained vast success in the region since its introduction.
Dan Pettersson, Senior Vice President, Mobile Equipment at Kalmar said: "The Tent Sale, where the dealers had the opportunity to buy trucks for stock, their rental fleets and in anticipation of customer opportunities, generated an impressive 425 orders in 2014 and in 2015 completely surpassed everyone's expectations with total unit orders of 512; this record total for orders at the sale was a result of the dealer's confidence in Kalmar Ottawa T2 tractor and in the economic outlook for 2015."
The units will be delivered to dealer bodies across the United States, Canada and Mexico during 2015.
