Cut your costs and emissions.

Electrically powered shuttle carriers are quicker and easier to maintain as they have less moving parts and can cut your fuel bills as electrically powered solutions are normally more cost-effective than traditionally powered shuttle carriers.

 

Why choose a Kalmar Shuttle Carrier?

 

  • Kalmar Shuttle Carriers can pick and place one 20ft to 53ft container at a time anywhere around your terminal
  • Can be fitted with an extendable twin-lift spreader allowing you to handle two 20ft containers at once
  • Kalmar Shuttle carriers can decouple your quayside and landside operations as they pick and place containers directly from or on the ground
  • You get a highly efficient power unit with our FastCharge Straddle Carrier producing zero emissions at source
  • Kalmar Shuttle Carriers have the strongest frame in the industry with a streamlined yet extremely rigid design which requires no external bracing
  • For manual operations our Shuttle Carriers are fitted with an ergonomically designed cabin that puts everything in easy reach of your operators
  • All of our shuttle carriers are easy and safe to service and have servicing intervals of up to 1,000 hours
  • Your operators will stay safe and in control at all times, as our whole range of shuttle carriers are fitted with an active stability control system, continually monitoring speed, turning radius and spreader position and prevents accelerating your shuttle carrier when required
  • All our shuttle carriers also feature a rope hoist system with only eight pulleys, making them highly efficient, safer and easier to maintain than other lifting system alternatives.

 

An alternative solution.

If you are looking for an alternative to a Kalmar Shuttle Carrier you may want to consider a Kalmar Straddle Carrier which are larger and can pick, place and also stack two containers at a time independently, giving you a cost-effective flexible solution as gantry cranes are not required to manage your stacks.
