Automated stacking cranes

Improve your port productivity

Automated stacking cranes (ASC) are rail-mounted cranes used for yard-stacking and in-stack transportation of containers. ASCs deposit and pick up containers from dedicated interchange areas located at both ends of the stack. The Kalmar automated stacking crane is controlled and monitored by Kalmar TLS software functions.

End-to-end efficiency

Today, end-to-end efficiency is realized. Kalmar features advanced automation at the quay, in the yard, and when handling trucks, ensuring efficiency is optimized in your every move.

Kalmar ASC+ references cover all the main market areas. The crane fits your highest stacking density requirements and operational needs.

The Kalmar ASC+ can be fitted with our automated truck-handling system, which makes your operation faster, safer, and more cost efficient.

Optimizing equipment performance using one centralized system, Kalmar TLS, generates additional benefits, such as easier implementation, reduced complexity, and greater productivity and performance from day one.
