About Automated Container Terminal
An Automated Container Terminal (ACT) is a modern port facility equipped with advanced automation and robotic technology to efficiently handle the loading and unloading of shipping containers from vessels, trucks, and trains. These terminals are designed to improve operational efficiency, reduce labor costs, enhance safety, and optimize container throughput. ACTs are equipped with automated container cranes, such as ship-to-shore (STS) cranes and automated stacking cranes (ASCs). These cranes use sensors and automation software to precisely locate, lift, and move containers. It reduces human error and increases the speed and accuracy of container handling operations, resulting in faster vessel and truck turnaround times. It significantly reduces labor requirements compared to manual terminals, leading to cost savings.
