Reach Stacker operations challenges and solutions for ports and terminals.

As the global economy grows, so does the demand for efficient and effective cargo handling equipment at ports and terminals. Among the heavy-duty equipment used in these areas, reach stackers play a crucial role in handling and stacking intermodal containers. However, the operations of reach stackers can be challenging due to several factors, including limited visibility, high productivity demands, container damage, maintenance and repair, and safety concerns.

Fortunately, Konecranes, a leading ports and terminals solution provider and in partnership with Heavy Lift, a division of CFAO Equipment SA delivers innovative solutions to help you overcome these challenges and improve the safety, sustainability, and productivity of your reach stacker operations.

Konecranes offers state-of-the-art technologies, including TRUCONNECT Remote monitoring services to enable tracking of real usage of the reach stacker that optimise reach stacker use, reducing downtime and increasing productivity.
