Why choose a Kalmar Shuttle Carrier?

  • Can be fitted with an extendable twin-lift spreader allowing you to handle two 20ft containers at once
  • Kalmar Shuttle carriers can decouple your quayside and landside operations as they pick and place containers directly from or on the ground
  • You get a choice of highly efficient drive units with our Kalmar FastCharge Shutlle Carrier producing zero emissions at source
  • Kalmar Shuttle Carriers have the strongest frame in the industry with a streamlined yet extremely rigid design which requires no external bracing

  • All of our shuttle carriers are easy and safe to service and have servicing intervals of up to 1000 hours
  • Your operators will stay safe and in control at all times, as our whole range of shuttle carriers are fitted with an active stability control system, continually monitoring speed, turning radius and spreader position and slows your shuttle carrier down when required
  • Our electric and hybrid range of shuttle carriers also feature a rope hoist system with only eight pulleys, making them highly efficient, safer and easier to maintain than other lifting system alternatives.
