Over the years, the cargo handling industry has made tremendous strides in developing the eco-efficiency of cargo and material handling through more efficient machines, optimization of cargo flows, as well as intelligent equipment and automation. The development has been driven by current megatrends such as urbanization and digitalization, as well as a growing concern for the environment.

The eco-efficiency of terminal operations encompasses three different angles, all of which are relevant for a container terminal.

Secondly, systems efficiency involves utilizing technology and data to enable more efficient operations. Finally, the concept of resource efficiency encompasses upgrades and refurbishments that extend equipment and fleet lifetimes.
