Decouple your terminal operations.
A Kalmar Straddle Carrier operates independently to other cranes, picking and placing containers on the ground or on your container stacks, allowing you to decouple your operations both on your quayside with your STS and on your landside with other cranes.
Kalmar Straddle Carriers provide you with the ultimate flexibility as they can:
- Load and unload trucks
- Carry containers and stack them 1 over 3
- Work with other cranes
- Be integrated into your rail exchange
- Move containers to and from reefer stacks
- Operate effectively between your warehouse or depot and main yard.
