VIDEO: Kalmar SmartStack Goes Live in Durban

Kalmar SmartStack Goes Live in Durban

Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has implemented the Kalmar SmartStack solution at Durban Container Terminal (DCT) in South Africa for real-time container inventory reporting and management.

This is the first terminal to implement Kalmar SmartStack using the narrowband communication network involving re-engineering from the standard WiFi deployment.

DCT is currently running 11 Kalmar straddle carriers with SmartStack and further eight are to be phased in over the coming weeks. In addition, 11 Terex straddle carriers will be phased into the SmartStack solution and are currently undergoing equipment testing trials by the customer.

The final machines to integrate with the solution in this project are two Kalmar empty container handlers. The project delivery further consolidates Kalmar’s partnership with the customer, Transnet Port Terminals.

Kalmar SmartStack is a process automation solution that provides automated inventory position updates to the terminal operating system.

Process automation solutions are designed to optimise the information flows within the terminal’s business processes to ensure the most efficient equipment utilisation. In addition to SmartStack, the solutions include SmartPath, SmartLane, SmartRail, SmartLift, SmartTruck, SmartQuay, SmartTrack and SmartFleet. These process automation solutions fit any size of terminal, any brand of equipment and any terminal operating system (TOS).
