Unique operator training for a full range of loads.

Rubber-Tyred Gantry Crane Simulator Training Pack


CM Labs’ simulator training solution for rubber-tyred gantry (RTG) operators provides the most advanced training on the market, with exercises featuring special loads and different container types.

The RTG simulator lets you prepare novices for the challenges of operating in a busy terminal. It provides a safe learning environment where they can get more seat time to learn the right behaviors without placing personnel or equipment at risk.

Training pack features

CM Labs is the only simulator on the market that accurately replicates machine stability—providing real-world training opportunities to help reduce the risk of accidents and improve operator efficiency.

Rubber-Tyred Gantry Crane Simulator Training Pack - Lifting Exercise to move a bigger load


This is the only RTG training solution on the market that provides exercises for working with overheight, open-top, breakbulk, and liquid containers, as well as standard 20-, 40-, and 45-foot containers.

Trainees can lock onto containers with twistlocks, and can also manage chain lifts and an overheight frame.

The simulation accurately represents twistlock behavior and provides operators with the realistic experience of locking the spreader onto the container.

Training Outcomes

Using the RTG simulator, operators can truly experience the effects of unbalanced loads. As a result, they learn the consequences of different maneuvers, in a controlled training environment. They also learn how to work with intermodal trailers and ITVs.

The solution’s learning exercises are designed to improve trainee productivity, by enhancing their ability to operate safely and efficiently, as well as teaching the skills required to work with all types of loads under different weather conditions. Options are included for both daytime and nighttime operations.

Simulated equipment specs:

Wheel base width: 23 meters
Wheel base depth: 12 meters
Capacity: 42 tons (below the spreader)
Container stacking height: 1 over 5

Compatible Hardware:

The RTG Simulator Training Pack can be installed on any Vortex port equipment simulator hardware, with different configurations to meet your budget, space, and training requirements. Designed for years of 24/7 operator training, Vortex simulators are built to last.
