Visy TopView – A New Angle for Terminal Automation



John Lund, Global Sales and Marketing Director, Visy


Container terminals use a variety of equipment to move and stack boxes: large ship-to-shore cranes at the quayside, gantry-type RMGs and RTGs, mobile harbour cranes, and reachstackers roaming in the yard area.

Despite the clear differences in the various types of container handling equipment (CHE), the common denominator is that they all move containers with spreaders.

In fact, a spreader touches every single container that arrives or leaves a terminal via the quayside or is moved within the yard. Therefore, turning the spreader into an automated smart device presents a multitude of benefits for operators.
