Cargotec Corporation: Kalmar hosts its first Terminal Automation Summit to share knowledge on port automation

CARGOTEC CORPORATION, PRESS RELEASE, 11 MAY 2016 AT 10 AM (EEST)

Kalmar, part of Cargotec, is hosting the first Terminal Automation Summit in
Australia this week. The three-day long exclusive event gathers port terminal
automation stakeholders to discuss and share experiences on the topic.

"Automation is a very complex and vast topic," saysIsmo Matinlauri
from Kalmar, one of the hosts of the event. "Most of the public discussion is
around technologies, software solutions and equipment, whereas they are only
part of the bigger picture." He continues: "We felt that the industry was
lacking a forum for sharing our combined knowledge and experiences from
recent automation projects worldwide. In addition, we wanted more discussion
around critical success factors and themes such as change management, which
is a significant factor in automation projects and requires a lot of effort
from the terminals undergoing the transformation. We decided to call up these
summits for different stakeholders to share their insight on terminal
automation beyond technology.

The agenda focuses on real life automation cases and best practices, and
includes excursions to DP World Brisbane and Patrick Autostrad Terminals in
Brisbane and Sydney.

"Australian ports have been the forerunners in port terminal automation,"
saysPeter McLean
, Vice President, Kalmar Australia and New Zealand. "We're excited to have the
first summit in our region, and I express my warmest thanks to all our
customers for the extremely positive response to the event as well as their
openness and willingness to give input and share lessons learned. It has been
a joy to work with them on this event."

Ismo Matinlauri adds: "Kalmar wants to shape the industry and make automation
more accessible for terminals around the world. I hope that Kalmar Automation
Summit will mitigate the risks involved and help terminal operations on their
journey towards a more competitive future.

Kalmar will be hosting two more Terminal Automation Summits later on this
year, and continue with the summits in 2018.
