Reach Stacker


Mevea Reach Stacker is a portable training solution for container operations with loaded containers. It has been designed for training of both new and already experienced reach stacker operators by providing real-life scenarios and metrics for the training and assessment.

Mevea Reach Stacker is modelled with physics-based methods, thus ensuring realistic machine behaviour in training. It operates in Mevea Standard Port environment and can handle 20- and 40-feet containers using a single lift spreader​. It can also be operated in sandbox mode without predefined scenarios​.


The use of the simulation enables the training to be organized without the use of the actual machine. This leaves the machine available for productive work and is free from machine operation related costs, such as fuel.

In addition, simulation is a safe environment for practicing the basic operations. Thus, simulation is a cost-efficient, safe, and environmentally friendly approach for operator training.

Why Choose the Mevea Reach Stacker?

Mevea Reach Stacker runs on Mevea Solver, which is a physics-engine that uses scientifically verified methods for the computational dynamics. For the customer, this ensures the dynamic behaviour of the machine is accurate, which, in turn, ensures accurate feedback for the operator in training.

The training scenarios include operations from basic handling and container lifting to more advanced container stacking operations.

Mevea Reach Stacker:

  1. Head-tracking capability for an intuitive feel of driving the actual machine;
  2. Optional VR-solution;
  3. Portable solution.

Thanks to its portability,  all training can easily be arranged in multiple locations with the same hardware.
