Morello’s rail-guided transfer carts


With expertise in the market of rail-guided transfer carts, including shuttle lifting carts, our company has emerged as a leader in various sectors, both locally and internationally.

We offer solutions designed with special care and tailored to our customers’ needs. Our operator-controlled rail-guided trolleys find applications in industrial plants, construction sites, offshore platforms, and vessels. They come in various power supply options, including diesel, battery, electric grid, and pneumatic versions.

Morello’s rail-guided transfer carts are ideal for handling tasks in the steel industry, concrete manufacturing, transportation within factories, warehouses, ports, and other heavy-duty fields that require rail-based movements and follow regular production cycles in terms of time and route. We also provide modern die change carts on rails to adapt to the rapidly changing needs of the automotive industry and optimize logistics.

Thanks to their steel wheels and operation on steel rails, these operator-controlled rail-guided trolleys can handle very high loading capacities due to the minimal friction between steel surfaces. Consequently, when compared to battery and diesel-powered trolleys on wheels, which require steering systems and greater power, our rail-guided transfer carts are a cost-effective choice with similar dimensions and loading capacities.  

With 70 years of experience in the production of rail-guided transfer carts, Morello offers vehicles equipped with modern technologies and a strong focus on design and innovation.

We manufacture a wide range of automatic rail-guided transfer carts, coil transfer carts, and shuttle lifting carts that cater to the needs of end customers and EPC companies looking to automate specific handling processes. Additionally, we can provide complete automatic transfer carts that can interface with a customer’s plant management software.

Morello has supplied automatic transfer carts to numerous steel mills, heavy-load warehouses, and various manufacturing industries.
