Kalmar Ottawa is #1 – With Models and Options to Fit Any Need.
Since 1958, Kalmar Ottawa terminal tractors have been the “gold standard” in trailer moving solutions for warehouse and distribution operations, ports, and rail terminals in North America. Regarded for their excellent durability, operator comfort, service ease and latest generation engines, featuring the cleanest in engine technology, all are built at the US manufacturing plant in Ottawa, Kansas.
Over 55,000 Kalmar Ottawa trucks have been produced, which is more than twice the production volume of all North American terminal tractor competitors combined.
As the world’s leader in terminal tractors offering the most comprehensive range of models for warehouse and distribution operations, ports and rail terminals, the company’s commitment to continuous product development has resulted in many industry firsts.
Besides being the original manufacturer of terminal tractors, Kalmar Ottawa was the first to offer machines with an automatic transmission, a rear door entry, integral air conditioning units, power cab tilt and ABS brake systems. Kalmar Ottawa terminal tractors were also the first on the market to receive DOT/EPA certification – a paramount classification for distribution and industrial customers whose operation entails shunting trailers between yards via public streets and roadways.
An expanding portfolio of eco-friendly Kalmar Ottawa terminal tractors including machines powered by CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) and LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) are also available.
