Path to Port Automation
Automation has been a growing megatrend in container terminals all over the world for over 20 years. However, automation is only part of the big picture and container terminals with manned cranes are still in the majority, and will remain so. Is full automation the only way to improve yard productivity and safety? Not at all. Check out our "Path to port automation" and discover how to get on it.

Improve efficiency and safety
Konecranes offers the possibility of de-coupling the crane and operator. In this model, the operator works in a safe and ergonomic office environment and can operate different cranes at different times. The cranes are operated using Konecranes’ field-proven Remote Operating Station (ROS) concept. De-coupling the crane and operator, and eliminating operator idling time, can produce significant productivity increases -- many more container moves per day with the same equipment and improved employee safety and satisfaction. Watch the video below and contact us to discuss how your port could take this leap forward!
Automated RTG (ARTG) System
The Konecranes ARTG system version 2.0 offers great new advantages for operators of container terminals using RTG cranes. Foremost among these is how it can be retrofit to literally any brownfield container terminal. It can fit any container stack envelope because it uses space very effectively.
Rubber Tired Gantry (RTG) Cranes
We offer Konecranes Rubber Tired Gantry (RTG) cranes and Konecranes Noell RTGs that make container handling safer, more productive and more reliable. The Konecranes RTG has an intelligent steel structure, Active Load Control (ALC) technology and a smarter cabin, making this RTG the most productive and reliable in the world
Rail Mounted Gantry (RMG) Cranes
The Konecranes RMG (rail mounted gantry crane) is the result of decades of crane design experience and knowledge from the field. It incorporates a host of technological innovations, most notably the smarter cabin with video and monitoring technology that provides superb visibility to container handling operations.
Konecranes Noell Straddle Carriers
Konecranes Noell Straddle Carriers are known for their excellent maneuverability, high speed and reliability. They do not need yard infrastructure, so initial investment costs are low. They are available in different sizes, stacking containers 1-over-2 or 1-over-3, ideally suited for step-by-step enlargement of container terminals as required.
Automated Terminal Tractor (A-TT)
Konecranes is pleased to announce that we now supply automated terminal tractors (A-TT). Terberg will be our partner in this effort, as a certifed supplier of terminal tractors. Konecranes will supply the automation technology as part of turn-key automated container handling delivery.
