DP World signs BOXBAY high-bay storage solution to Busan terminal

DP World applies BOXBAY high-bay storage solution in South Korea

DP World has implemented BOXBAY high-bay storage (HBS) system at its terminal in Busan, South Korea.

The technology will be integrated into Pusan Newport Corporation (PNC), a subsidiary of DP World, to increase efficiency, safety, and sustainability at the South Korean terminal.

BOXBAY is a fully automated system with additional safety features built-in. The system allows direct access to each container at any time, eliminating 350,000 unproductive moves per year.

According to the Dubai-based operator, this will improve overall truck servicing time by 20 per cent, further improving PNC’s service delivery to its customers.

The HBS system technology will be seamlessly integrated with the existing mode of ARMG/truck operations as a retrofit on an existing empty storage area.

We have long invested in new and innovative technology that will improve and modernise our ports and terminals,” said Tiemen Meester, COO Ports & Terminals, DP World.

“With the introduction of the BOXBAY high-bay storage system, we will be able to better serve our customers while keeping our people safe and cutting carbon emissions from the environment.”

The company plans to power the system by using solar energy, generated by photovoltaic panels on the roof of the storage system.

The signing of the respective contract took place in Jebel Ali Free Zone, Dubai, attended by Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Group Chairman and CEO of DP World and Burkhard Dahmen, Chairman and CEO of SMS group, the two partners behind BOXBAY.

BOXBAY will be presenting at PTI’s Container Terminal Automation Conference on 14 and 15 March in Hamburg, Germany.

In October 2022, BOXBAY’s solution for port terminals recently won the German Award for Supply Chain Management at the International Supply Chain Conference.

DP World handled 79 million TEU across its global portfolio of container terminals for 2022.

The figure stands for a percentage increase of 1.4 year-over-year (YoY) and 2.8 on a like-for-like basis.
