An automated straddle carrier terminal combines stacking and transportation capabilities.
Straddle carrier operations are typically suited for medium-sized terminals. When increased volumes require a higher stacking density, the automated straddle carriers can still provide transportation to an automated stacking crane. This also makes the straddle carriers suited for use in larger facilities where ASCs are deployed.
You can achieve the transition from a manual to an automated straddle carrier terminal without any temporary drop in capacity and throughput. We can future-proof straddle carriers during manufacturing by configuring them for both manual and fully automated operation, giving you the freedom to move towards automation at your own pace.
The automated straddle carrier terminal is based on state-of-the-art vehicle navigation controls and our advanced equipment control system TLS. This intelligent technology makes the automated straddles the most flexible way to realise an automated terminal.
Although automation is more straightforward at greenfield terminals, it is possible to convert existing – or brownfield – terminals to partial or full automation.
