Maldives Ports orders three Kalmar terminal tractors

Kalmar has reached an agreement to supply Maldives Ports Limited (MPL) with three Kalmar T2i terminal tractors, which are expected to be delivered in the first quarter of 2023.

MPL was incorporated in 2008 to ensure the efficient management and operation of government-owned ports and port facilities in the Maldives. The organisation manages and operates Malé Commercial Harbour – the main port in the Maldives located in the northwest of the capital Malé Island – and three regional ports. MPL’s current fleet includes five Kalmar TL2 and three Kalmar Ottawa terminal tractors.

The T2i terminal tractors will be supplied with two years of access to Kalmar Insight, a performance management tool that turns fleet data into actionable, impactful insights.

Ahmed Inaan, chief technical officer of MPL, commented, “Kalmar has proven to be an invaluable partner in providing MPL with reliable terminal equipment and vehicles. Their after-sales customer services are unrivalled due to their responsiveness and rapid assistance in relation to any queries we raise. Additionally, Kalmar continues to provide our vehicle and equipment operators with comprehensive training programmes, which ensure safe and cost-efficient operation of our terminal resources.”
