Kalmar SmartTrack

Efficient synchronization of rail moves and accurate yard and train inventory

Kalmar SmartTrack is a process automation solution for rail yards.

It brings container identification and handoff to container-handling equipment for efficient synchronization of rail moves and an accurate yard and train inventory.

SmartTrack is the gatekeeper to your rail yard

Using optical character recognition (OCR) technology, SmartTrack automatically identifies rolling stock and containers as they pass through the rail yard. Containers are identified as they are lifted before being passed on to yard tractors or set down on the ground.

The solution integrates with your terminal operating system’s inventory and job information, and operators can check the correct moves via the graphical user interface. It also supports coordination of yard tractor movements through real-time visualizations of the rail inventory, container handling equipment and tractor locations.

Kalmar SmartTrack enables careful, efficient synchronization of rail moves and provides you with an accurate yard and train inventory.
