The share of goods transported by container is growing. Container terminals worldwide are challenged to meet increasing expectations on efficiency in logistics and shorter time for transportation. This means that container vessels have limited slots at dockside for unloading and loading. And the handling of containers on the yard needs to be carefully managed to ensure high throughput with as little resource spend as possible. This puts high requirements on dependability and performance for the equipment used, from the container spreader on the ship-to-shore crane to the Straddle carrier or AGV.
CrossControl provide OEMs and system suppliers in container handling with advanced graphical display for effective HMI and machine controller solutions, increasingly having integrated mobile connectivity features to integrate equipment with Yard Management Systems. Mobile connectivity is also deployed for remote diagnostics to support planning of maintenance and highest possible equipment.
