Choosing the right level of automation for your port or terminal depends on your business objectives and needs. Kalmar One offers five different levels. You may choose to start with process automation or operator-assisted moves, in which some moves and processes are automated and the rest are manually controlled and monitored by your operators. At higher levels of automation, your equipment will be able to execute all moves automatically, without an operator. An operator will still be required to oversee the operations and handle exceptions. Sign in to the Kalmar Key Partner Forum to learn more >>   Lifetime support. Kalmar One, including any future operational or system changes, will be fully supported throughout its lifetime. This ensures that you will always have the support you need to stay in control of your automation journey.
