Automated Container Handling


The equipment matters

Konecranes has the widest and deepest offering in automated container handling. Our automation approach is both pragmatic and forward-looking. It is built on experience from the field and deep knowledge of container crane design and operation. When it comes to automation, the container handling equipment matters.

Brownfield, greenfield, future-field

Our automation approach encompasses greenfield terminals, brownfield terminals and retrofittable automated performance and safety enhancing features. We offer complete automated systems as well as manual equipment with a built-in growth path to automation for RTG, RMG and straddle carrier operations. We offer every alternative for automated horizontal transport: AGVs, Automated Sprinter Carriers and Automated Terminal Tractors. The picture is completed by  automated elements in the terminal, software and Equipment Control System (ECS) which runs the automated terminal.

Built-in growth path to automation

With Konecranes, you can move your container terminal to full automation step by step, block by block, process by process, learning as you go. You can start by retrofitting your cranes with driver assistance features, including electrification / power option retrofits as well as complete control system upgrades as appropriate. At every step, you can choose the degree of automation that your business needs.
