    Internal Transfer Vehicle Simulator

    Safely train ITV driving skills and terminal best practices with the Vortex Internal Transfer Vehicle Simulator.

Internal Transfer Vehicle Simulator

The Vortex® (ITV) internal transfer vehicle simulator training pack builds machine driving skills and terminal best practices that are transferable across the complete port work flow. Without disrupting regular operations, trainees learn how to safely drive an ITV, handle a trailer, and interact with other port equipment, accelerating their training toward working on the real terminal.

Competency Based Training

Horizontal transport involves two key sets factors: vehicle handling and terminal best practices. Training on the Vortex (ITV) Internal Transfer Vehicle simulator training pack gives apprentices the opportunity to grasp driving basics and port procedures in a safe and skills reinforcing environment.

  • Skill-specific training scenarios
  • Vehicle controls familiarisation
  • Trailer handling
  • Container picking and dropping

Flexible to Unique User Needs

The Vortex (ITV) Internal Transfer Vehicle simulator training pack goes beyond basic controls understanding, and delivers a true-to-life, stimulating experience based on the behaviour and mechanics of the real equipment. Along with instructor-triggered weather, machine faults, and traffic, this training pack offers an environment that both challenges students and accelerates skills development. Skill specific training focuses on building basic competencies including:

  • Driving in reverse
  • Turning
  • Parking
  • Maneuvering within tight spaces
  • Operating with a 5th wheel

Trainee Performance Reporting

With actionable guidance and clear progress reports, evaluating whether an operator is ready for live operations has never been easier. Vortex simulators help instructors track skills progress using objective yet instructor customisable metrics that integrate your key safety parameters.

  • Vehicle performance: Adjust and tune vehicles to specific capabilities (accelerations, max speeds, stearing deadband)
  • Scoring: Set customer-specific, objective scoring criteria for each scenario.
  • Branding: Customer logos can be integrated within the environment, on the vehicles, and on after-action reports

Equipment training packs

From ship-to-shore and ship pedestal cranes, to reachstacker and other cargo handling equipment, we offer a wide range of ports and container terminal equipment training simulators that can run on a single hardware platform.

Realistic simulators are an effective tool to evaluate and assess apprentices-in-training for both efficiency and safety. Tracking vital metrics across the entire training scenario, instructors can review statistics after completion, allowing for detailed after-action reviews and reporting.

Vortex Ports hardware platforms

With swappable controls, flexible configuration options, and industrial-grade hardware, CM Labs offers a family of scalable Vortex port simulator hardware platforms that can grow with your requirements and budget.

Instructor Operating Station

The IOS enables instructors to initiate Vortex Port Equipment Simulator exercise sessions and engage trainees by exposing them to the types of variable conditions they will experience in the real world.

  • “Having the simulator really does ensure that after three weeks, people are getting through the training system. It eliminates the opportunity cost of having a non-skilled operator on site.”
