The Kalmar reachstacker machine type is well adapted to all kinds of diversified Intermodal handling, from one-unit operations to medium sized transfer terminals with high demands of versatility and flexibility.
A reachstacker can also be a perfect supplement to the terminals existing fleet of other machines.
It can be put in operation at short notice to reduce bottlenecks because it masters most of the occurring tasks in the terminal. With it's advanced lifting equipment, boom and attachment, this type of machine manages to handle both containers and trailers so there won't be any loss in production due to conversion.
When handling containers the top lift function will be used and the unit will be operated as a reachstacker dedicated for top lift container handling. Apart from that the unit can handle a trailer in first and second rail by using the lifting legs for bottom lift.
Container transport on canals and rivers by barge is an environmental friendly and growing transport mode. The considerable capacity at long load centres and the option to get an extended boom nose facilitates handling of containers when loading/unloading a barge.
