Kalmar shuttle carriers improve terminal throughput by decoupling ship-to-shore and yard operations. Shuttle carriers are the ideal horizontal transportation method for terminals designed around automatic stacking cranes (ASCs) or manual or automated rubber-tyred gantry cranes (RTGs).
With a shuttle carrier system, container handover doesn't require a crane and a carrier to be present at the same time. Instead, cranes can ground containers in buffer areas rather than waste valuable time positioning them on trailers or automated guided vehicles (AGVs).
All our shuttle carrier models are designed to help you improve terminal productivity, cut costs and increase safety.
