Kalmar SmartLane

Increase gate throughput and reduce queuing and congestion

Kalmar SmarLane uses identification technologies to manage gate operations for street  trucks, ensuring that all containers and trucks are automatically identified before entering or exiting your terminal.

The gateway to smarter, faster operations

SmartLane can automatically capture information from all trucks and containers entering and exiting your terminal. The radio frequency identification (RFID) tag of a truck allows the driver’s information to be captured, while optical character recognition (OCR) cameras can capture the truck registration and container IDs.

SmartLane combines this information with the appointment information. It also makes remote inspection and exception management possible.

With the ability to process more trucks per lane per hour, SmartLane increases your throughput and reduces queuing and congestion at your gates.
