How Tire Pressure is Impacting Your Shipping Port

September 20, 2023

If you work in a shipping container port or a railyard, you know how important it is to keep your material handling equipment running smoothly and efficiently. Straddle carriers, & reach stackers are specialized vehicles that lift, transport, and stack containers in a port or a railyard. They handle heavy loads up to 60 tons and stack containers up to four units high. They are also highly maneuverable and can fit in tight spaces. Straddle carriers and other port and railyard equipment are essential for our supply chain, but the wear-and-tear of the loading and unloading on tires is taxing on the longevity and efficacy of the equipment. 

Container handling  and Tire Pressure

Straddle carriers & reach stackers also face many challenges that can affect their performance and safety. One of the most critical factors is tire pressure. Tire pressure affects the stability, traction, fuel efficiency, and lifespan of your straddle carrier tires. If the tire pressure is too low or too high, it can cause uneven wear, blowouts, overheating, and reduced load capacity. This can lead to costly downtime, repairs, and accidents.
