Automated truck handling with Autostrad

Automated truck handling with Autostrad

ATH enables a fully automated container flow between quay cranes and trucks by automating the last stage of the landside operations – the final placement of containers onto road trucks. The feature is already available for Kalmar ASCs and has now been added to Kalmar’s horizontal transportation offering.

 

ATH automates the placement of containers from automated straddle carriers onto trucks in the terminal’s truck interchange zones, instead of using remote control.

 

A Truck Lane Measurement System (TLMS) is used to measure the truck’s profile, location and the container positions available, while a camera imaging system is used for fine positioning when placing the container onto the truck. ATH improves the safety, predictability and cost-efficiency of terminal operations by eliminating the need for personnel to be present in the truck interchange zones.

 

“We are pleased to introduce this feature for our horizontal transportation offering," said Henrik Häggblom, VP, Horizontal Transportation Solutions, Kalmar.

 

"By automating the final step of landside operations in an AutoStrad terminal, we are now able to move people away from the truck interchange areas. This helps terminals improve their safety and provides flexibility by enabling 24/7 operations.”
