The machines, designed to operate in Asia-Pacific and which Kalmar claim reduce fuel consumption by up to 15%, have been ordered by Trac-Wheels (M) Sdn Bhd to lease to its Miri Port and Tanjung Manis Port terminals in East Malaysia.

Richard Song, managing director of Trac-Wheels (M) Sdn Bhd, said: "The environmental features of the Kalmar TL2 terminal tractor can further contribute to the sustainable goals of Miri Port, whilst Tanjung Manis Port strives to improve operational efficiency.
