Forterra was formerly RRAI, the company working with FPInnovations on off-road autonomous logging trucking in Quebec.

“This agreement brings together our vast experience in developing world-class autonomous systems and Kalmar’s extensive experience in port and terminal automation with their market-leading terminal tractor product,” said Josh Araujo, CEO, Forterra. “We believe AutoDrive is the best platform to create a compelling new offering for the container and trailer-handling market.”

Added Juuso Kanner, vice-president, automation business line, Kalmar: “We believe that automated operations will eventually become the standard in the container-handling industry, and there is huge potential in automating terminal tractors in terms of safety and productivity.”
