Konecranes to supply automated warehouse container handling systems

Konecranes in partnership with Pesmel will supply automated warehouse container handling systems following a Memorandum of Understanding signed on 25th November 2021 to provide the globally available new technology under the Konecranes brand. The solution will handle containers fully automatically in a high-bay warehouse, where they are stacked up to 14 high. This reduces the space needed for containers by up to 80%. Automated container tracking is part of a management system that can be integrated easily with the facility’s overall logistics management system. 

Tero Vallas, Business Development Manager, Konecranes Port Solutions, said: “Many logistics operations and distribution centers are faced with handling a large number of incoming and outgoing containers, with great operational complexity and an increasing scarcity of land. Now, from Konecranes and Pesmel, warehouse container handling solutions are available that will impose order on the container chaos while eliminating the complexity, improving throughput, and also greatly reducing the space needed for containers in logistics hubs and distribution centers.”
