A world where container logistics companies never touch a physical container, nor own or operate a single ship, terminal or container handling machine: that’s a future scenario considered by cargo handling solutions and services firm Kalmar.
Container yards will continue to exist in some form, despite potential innovative new methods of transporting cargo, Kalmar’s Tomi Tuulkari has claimed.
Terminal operator Curaçao Port Services has ordered two ship-to-shore (STS) cranes, including related spare parts, from Cargotec company Kalmar.
Cargo handling solutions company Kalmar has won a contract to heighten four Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industries Company (ZPMC) ship-to-shore (STS) cranes located at France’s biggest container port.
The ports and terminals sector is still 10 to 15 years behind other industries because of its reluctance to standardise or automate, Kalmar president Antti Kaunonen has said.
Kalmar will supply 15 units of container handling equipment to Shanghai International Port (Group) Co., Ltd (SIPG).
Cargo handling solutions and services firm Kalmar has secured an order to supply a Kalmar Fleet Solution of mobile equipment to Australia’s biggest privately-owned container logistics operator, Australian Container Freight Services (ACFS).
Efforts by ports to green operations are driving technology development but the whole maritime industry needs to work together to do more, the senior vice president of mobile equipment at Kalmar has said.
Kalmar president Antti Kaunonen has identified automation, sharing data and making best use of big data as three key opportunities shaping the ports and terminals industry.
The container port sector is benefitting from huge investments from start-ups and major technology businesses due to the enormous mass-market opportunity for technologies connected to the Internet of Things and autonomous cars — “a market … several orders of magnitude larger than the container shipping industry”.
The launch of Kalmar’s new Eco Reachstacker marks the company’s first step on its journey to a full suite of electrically powered units by 2021.
Kalmar has made good on its promise to deliver open interfaces to support greater automation in the port and terminal sector.
Kalmar is to upgrade a 1988-built NKK ship-to-shore (STS) crane currently operating at the UK’s Port of Bristol, located in South West England.
Cargo handling solutions and services firm Kalmar is to hold a two-day idea-creation challenge during this year’s TOC Europe event which aims to discover disruptive ideas for specific customer issues in the container handling sector.
Standardisation is needed to speed up deployment, radically shorten start-up times, and simplify the maintenance of highly complex automated systems, according to the president of Kalmar.
Kalmar has said that the latest-generation Stage 5 diesel engines it is installing in container handling products “will be some of the last diesels [it] will install on new equipment, anywhere” following the company’s announcement last week that all its products will be electrified by 2021.
Kalmar will deliver autonomous equipment, software and services for a Yara digitalised, autonomous, battery-operated container vessel being built to reduce costs and enable zero emissions.
Kalmar plans to make electrically powered versions of all its equipment available by 2021 as part of a commitment to reducing emissions in cargo and material handling operations by fostering eco-efficient technologies.
Kalmar is introducing an electric version of its popular Kalmar Ottawa T2 terminal tractor which will help operators cut emissions at source.
Global port equipment manufacturer Kalmar anticipates an “extremely promising” automated guided vehicles (AGV) market over the next three to five years.
