Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has received an order for three Kalmar hybrid shuttle carriers from the Port of Virginia. The order was received during the fourth quarter of 2014, while the delivery is scheduled for this year’s third quarter.
The carriers will operate at Virginia International Gateway (VIG), one of the port’s four terminals. VIG is a semi-automated operation with automatic stacking cranes (ASCs) in the yard operations and manual shuttle carriers used for the transport of containers from the ship-to-shore area to the ASCs.
The shuttle carrier as the mode of horizontal transportation ensures high efficiency by decoupling the terminal’s waterside and landside operations. Kalmar’s innovative technology enables VIG to increase its terminal capacity to keep up with growing demand, while reducing its carbon footprint as well as fuel costs.
