Maintenance of Automated Terminals

When converting a manual container terminal to automation, the first thing that comes to mind is installing automated equipment and building the infrastructure needed to run it

AGV Versus Lift AGV Versus ALV

It is a recurring question in the planning of automated terminals: what is the ‘best’ mode of horizontal transportation? For many, horizontal transportation is seen as one of the most complex components of terminal robotisation, and this is right in my view. The question we aim to answer in this article is: What is the most costeffective automated transportation system, with the today available technology?

Efficient Terminal Transportation

Interest in electric horizontal transportation at terminals is growing rapidly. At terminals utilising automated stacking cranes (ASC), the options are the automated guided vehicle (AGV) or the shuttle carrier, either manually operated or automated. As container movement between the quay and container yard is a potential bottleneck, the Kalmar FastCharge shuttle carrier offers a major advantage by fully decoupling activities at both ends. This concept provides greater added value depends on the characteristics and requirements of the terminal.

Overview of IAPH mid-term conference and board meeting

An overview of the IAPH mid-term conference and board meeting. The conference contains seven sessions, whereby industry professionals discuss some of the biggest challenges facing ports and terminals. The sessions can be broken down into the following segments: port automation; port planning and investment; port operations - women driving success; key note address - raising the costa concordia; big, bigger, biggest; port infrastructure and interfaces and other challenges for ports, respectively.

Automation for Brownfield Terminals

Automating a greenfield (newly built) terminal from scratch is often what comes to mind when discussing automated terminals. However, existing (brownfield) terminals can be automated partially or wholly to achieve the benefits of automation. In this article Kalmar's director for terminal development and automation, Elmar Hendriks, discusses how these benefits can be achieved.

Efficient cargo handling comes from efficient data handling

Since 1986, the worldwide volume of container freight has increased by eight to ten percent annually. The globalization of the world economy, together with manufacturers’ tendency to transfer their production facilities to the Asian and Pacific countries, have been the main factors for the growth of the sea freight industry for the last ten to 15 years.

Striving for best practice throughout the ports industry

PEMA provides a forum and a public voice for the global port equipment sector, reflecting the industry’s critical role in enabling safe, secure, sustainable and productive ports; and thereby actively supporting international maritime trade.

Standardised electronic interfaces for spreaders

Container-handling machines (e.g. ship-to-shore cranes, mobile harbour cranes, straddle carriers, rail mounted gantry cranes and rubber-tyred gantry cranes) are an important business in the increasing market of logistics and transportation. These machines and their spreaders have to exchange command and status information. In the past, the manufacturers bilaterally agreed upon the interface between the crane and spreader, so it was not possible to use a spreader from another manufacturer without re-programming the crane controller.
