Fast, flexible and cost-efficient

Kalmar FastCharge or FastCharge hybrid shuttle carriers are charged at stations located along the working routes used by the machines. A charging station consists of a pantograph, charging pole, and power station. The shuttle carrier’s lithium ion batteries are fast charged via a contact dome on top of the machine.

Because charging can be done during the working cycle, while the shuttle carrier waits to collect a container, there is no impact on machine availability or your terminal’s overall productivity. Kalmar FastCharge is a scalable and flexible system that can be adapted to suit a wide variety of terminal setups.
