PATRICK’S terminal in Brisbane has taken delivery of five new Kalmar automated straddle carriers with a further seven now en-route to Sydney. Last weekend, the equipment was discharged at Patrick Terminals – Brisbane AutoStrad.
Automated straddle carriers are a solution for automating quay, stack and landside operations, ideal for medium and large sized terminals.
The new 8th generation automated straddles are part of Patrick Terminals’ ongoing fleet renewal program and will join the existing fleet of over 130 Kalmar straddle carriers, replacing some of the older-generation Kalmar AutoStrads in the fleet.
The straddles will now be fitted with navigation and commissioned ready to join the fleet in mid-2022.
