Simplicity, flexibility and economy – all from one machine.

The Kalmar AutoStrad™ is our proven solution for automating your quay, stack and landside operations. It is ideal for medium-sized and large terminals where high equipment flexibility, safety and minimal labour costs are key requirements.

Automated straddle carriers increase terminal safety and sustainability, and provide greater long-term value than manual solutions.The flexibility of the Kalmar AutoStrad makes realising an automated terminal simple, low-risk and achievable within a relatively short timeframe.

Cost-efficient automation for existing fleets.

All Kalmar straddle carrier models can be automated in a cost-effective way. We can future-proof straddle carriers during manufacture by configuring the machines for manual or fully automated operation, giving you the freedom to move towards automation at your own pace.

 

Fully automated container flow with ATH

With the automated truck handling (ATH) feature, you can take the level of automation one step further. ATH enables a a fully automated container flow between quay cranes and trucks by automating the last stage of the landside operations – the final placement of containers onto road trucks. The feature has earlier been already available for Kalmar yard cranes and has been recently added to Kalmar’s horizontal transportation offering. 

ATH automates the placement of containers from automated straddle carriers onto trucks in the terminal’s truck interchange zones. A Truck Lane Measurement System (TLMS) is used to measure the truck’s profile, location and the container positions available, while a camera imaging system is used for fine positioning when placing the container onto the truck. ATH improves the safety, predictability and cost-efficiency of terminal operations by eliminating the need for personnel to be present in the truck interchange zones.
