Automated stacking cranes

Improve your port productivity

Automated stacking cranes (ASC) are rail-mounted cranes used for yard-stacking and in-stack transportation of containers. ASCs deposit and pick up containers from dedicated interchange areas located at both ends of the stack. The Kalmar automated stacking crane is controlled and monitored by Kalmar TLS software functions.
