FINLAND's Kalmar has signed an agreement to supply the Saigon Newport Corporation (SNC) with 25 units of the Kalmar Essential Terminal Tractor TL2.
The delivery is expected by the end of 2020 and was done through Kalmar's local dealer Unico Vina JSC, said the announcement from the Cargotec unit.
Since 1989, SNC has grown to become Vietnam's most extensive container terminal operator. The company provides services such as cargo handling, logistics, salvage, piloting, and multi-modal transportation.
The import-export container throughput of SNC accounts for more than 90 per cent of the market share in the Saigon Hochiminh City area and almost 50 per cent nationwide.
The company's cargo-handling fleet includes Kalmar equipment, including RTGs, reachstackers, and empty container handlers. The new terminal tractors will succeed part of SNC's existing terminal tractor fleet at the Cat Lai Terminal.
The TL2 has a highly stable bolted chassis design to facilitate smoother and more efficient maintenance. Smart programming with a highly efficient driveline can reduce fuel consumption by up to 15 per cent.
