ICTSI Orders Big at Kalmar

ICTSI Orders Big at Kalmar

Kalmar has received two separate orders for cargo handling equipment from the Philippine-based terminal operator International Container Services Inc. (ICTSI) for its terminals in Manila and Subic Bay.

Kalmar will deliver in total 42 Kalmar Ottawa terminal tractors, five Kalmar reachstackers and two Kalmar rubber-tyred gantry cranes (RTGs) to Manila International Container Terminal (MICT).

ICTSI also ordered 16 Kalmar Ottawa terminal tractors and two Kalmar RTGs for Subic Bay International Terminal Corporation (SBITC).

Two of the Kalmar Gloria reachstackers (Kalmar DRG450-60S5M) and three Kalmar empty container handlers (Kalmar DCT80) will be supplied to MICT by the end April 2015.

All Kalmar Ottawa terminal tractors will be delivered to Manila and SBITC’s new container terminal in Zambales during the third quarter. The delivery of Kalmar E-One2 RTGs is scheduled for completion by end-November 2015.

The expansion of terminal operations currently underway at MICT and SBITC has required an increase in the existing fleets. MICT currently accounts for the majority of container traffic moving through Manila. SBITC is the major gateway for Central and Northern Luzon.

Mohamed Ghandar, ICTSI Director Asia Region and General Manager of MICT, said:“MICT is ICTSI’s flagship operation and since 1988 we have increased the terminal’s annual capacity five-fold. We are expanding the cargo handling fleet to make it the largest and most modern terminal operation in the Philippines.”
