Santos terminal BTP orders Kalmar tractor units

Brasil Terminal Portuário (BTP) has ordered nine Kalmar Ottawa T2 terminal tractors from the Finnish manufacturer for its terminal operations at the Port of Santos, Brazil.

The order was booked in 2021 Q1 order intake of Kalmar's parent company, Cargotec, while the delivery of all units is scheduled to be completed by the beginning of the third quarter of the year.

BTP, a joint-venture between Terminal Investment Limited (TIL) and APM Terminals, is a multipurpose terminal for container and liquid bulk handling located on the right bank of the Port of Santos.

In 2020, BTP set a new record for the Port of Santos and for Brazil by handling almost 1.2 million TEU.

BTP has partnered Kalmar since the terminal began operations in 2013 and its existing Kalmar equipment fleet includes empty container handlers, reachstackers and terminal tractors.

The Kalmar Ottawa T2 terminal tractor is a purpose-built truck featuring an ergonomic cab design, fast fifth-wheel lifting and easy-access service points to speed up routine checks and servicing.
