Kalmar Maintenance Remote Support

Kalmar Maintenance Remote Support is a data driven service that helps you optimise equipment availability and reduce downtime of both manual and automated fleets. We help you ensure that your fleet performs according to your terminal’s Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). The Kalmar Maintenance Remote Support currently covers Shuttle and Straddle Carriers connected to the Kalmar Cloud. The service will be offered in three levels:

1. Periodic Health Checks (Level 1): We provide monthly reports and servicing recommendations based on analysed fleet data. Our recommendations enable you to continuously develop your fleet to ensure efficient running of the equipment.

2. Continuous Proactive Monitoring (Level 2): In addition to Level 1 monthly reports and servicing recommendations, you can receive proactive support from Kalmar experts according to the agreed service level.

3. Predictive Support and Monitoring (Level 3): This is our most extensive service containing the previous two levels and related recommendations. Additionally we’ll help you identify and solve potential equipment issues according to the agreed service level before they impact our operations. This most extensive service is still in the development phase.

What you’ll get:

  • Analysis of the operational data of your Shuttle and Straddle carriers connected to the Kalmar Cloud. The service will soon be extended to ASCs, RTGs and RMGs.
  • Identification of any issues that need to be resolved.
  • Identified actions to take to resolve any issues.
