The guidelines and best practice recommendations with regards to container terminal throughput or capacity allow financiers, designers and operators of Container Terminals to reliably predict quay size and container yard size for a given TEU throughput.
However, with the advent and adoption of automation within the Container Port Sector, these recommendations and guidelines are now looking out-dated and in need of detailed investigation and update. In addition, there are increased health and safety benefits to port personnel and reduced equipment damage that come with the adoption of automation principles.
This talk will focus on the new levels of productivity being achieved with automated container handling systems globally and whether new and existing Container Terminals can significantly improve productivity, health and safety and lower OPEX by adopting various automation technologies.
