ABB’s Remote Crane Operator Stories series (#RemoteCraneOperators) has continued with Eric Gonzales, who works at Long Beach Container Terminal (LBCT) in California, the first fully-automated container terminal in the US.
Gonzales has shared his experiences of “babysitting” a large number of stacking remotely.
In the video, Gonzales said: “We assist and help with the ship, the rail and the dock of loading and unloading truck drivers.
“We are working three desks right now and we are babysitting 32 cranes, which is quite a big number.”
Watch the previous videos in ABB’s series, which features two employees of APM Terminals’ fully-automated terminal in Rotterdam, Maasvlakte II.
