Automatic stacking crane system

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.

End-to-end efficiency

Today, end-to-end efficiency is realized. Kalmar features advanced automation at the quay, in the yard and when handling trucks, ensuring efficiency is optimised in your every move.

Kalmar ASC+ references cover all the main market areas. The crane fits your highest stacking density requirements and operational needs.

Kalmar ASC+ can be fitted with our automated truck handling system which makes your operation faster, safer and more cost efficient.

Optimising equipment performance by one centralized system, Kalmar TLS, generates additional benefits such as an easier implementation, reduced complexity, productivity and performance from day one.

Automatic stacking crane terminal

Automated stacking cranes system enables the highest possible capacity and stacking density. The ASC terminal optimises throughput and stack footprint. 

Automated truck handling

The landside automation module ensures safe and efficient handling of all transport systems, with Kalmar automated truck handling maintaining constant high productivity. The truck handling technology is based on measurements taken by lasers as the crane approaches the truck.
