Container handling equipment

Container handling devices are specialized devices widely used all over the world in various branches of industry. Sea transport is an industry that cannot function without this type of equipment. Nowadays, in virtually all ports and terminals that deal with container transport, container handling equipment can be seen. They enable fast and safe transport of containers. Presently, along with the increase in the use of containers in transport, groupage reloading is increasingly used. Kalmar is one of the leading companies in the production of container handling equipment.


Among the container handling devices, we can distinguish the following classifications:

  • Harbor cranes including mobile, rail-mounted and / or floating cranes;
  • Offshore container cranes;
  • Container stacking gantry cranes - on rubber wheels, rail-mounted or automatic;
  • Lifting trucks - for handling empty containers, manipulators of full containers, heavy forklifts;
  • Gantry trucks, including stacking or quick transport;
  • Transport carts - automatic transport carts and automatic transport carts with lifting.

Historical overview of container handling devices

operator on container handling equipment

Initially, containers in terminals and ports were handled by gantry cranes, port cranes and heavy forklifts. Then, due to the increased flow and the greater capacity of the containers, it was necessary to use special machines. Gantry cranes, gantry carriages and shuttle trolleys were designed for this purpose and were characterized by high lifting capacity. They were a pillar of port container handling operations, but recently they have been replaced by reachstackers - specialized forklifts originally designed exclusively for container handling. Every year, around 2,000 reachtackers are sold worldwide. Reach forklifts rarely come to the aftermarket as they are initially purchased with specific operating conditions in mind and in line with long-term business plans. The use of reachstackers can speed up container handling in intermediate warehouses and low-consolidation terminals, reduce container handling costs, and thus strengthen the position of a given port, region and even country in freight transport.
