Driving innovation in automation
Automation ensures consistent, predictable and reliable performance. This in turn makes your planning and ship handling dependable – giving your terminal a competitive advantage and boosting business.
We were the first to introduce automated stacking cranes, in 1990 at the European Container Terminals site in the Netherlands, and we launched the first automated straddle carriers at Hoogovens in the Netherlands in 1993. We continue to lead the industry in equipment automation solutions in the new millennium, having delivered the the first automated straddle carrier terminal, in Brisbane, Australia in 2005 and the first three-crane automated stacking system, for HHLA in Hamburg, Germany in 2009 .
We also realised a hybrid terminal layout at the TraPac terminal in Los Angeles, USA in 2014, and introduced the most advanced RTG terminal to date, due to open in Oslo, Norway in 2015.
