Kalmar, part of Cargotec, is celebrating a significant milestone with the production of its 70,000th Kalmar Ottawa terminal tractor. Destined for long-standing customer Penske Truck Leasing, the truck was completed on 27 February at Kalmar's US manufacturing facility in Ottawa, Kansas. Employees and guests gathered at the plant to celebrate and watch the final assembly of the truck.

The Kalmar Ottawa T2 Terminal Tractor sets the standard for world-class trailer handling solutions for port, intermodal and distribution customers. Available in DOT/EPA-certified and off-road configurations, the T2 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. Kalmar now also offers a fully electric version of the Kalmar Ottawa, called the T2E. It features the latest in battery technology, a fully electric powertrain that produces zero emissions at source and a comfortable driving environment.

Penske Truck Leasing, headquartered in Reading, Pennsylvania is a leading global transportation services provider. The company operates 300,000 vehicles and serves customers in more than 1,000 locations in North and South America, Europe, Australia and Asia.
