New CENIT report on Automated Container Terminals

Automated container terminals promise greater efficiency. But do they perform better than conventional ones?

CENIT new report “Lessons from Reality on Automated Container Terminals: What Can Be Expected from Future Technological Developments?”, by Genís Majoral Oller, Andrés R., and Sergi Sauri finds that:

  • Automated container terminals have the potential to be more efficient, reduce operating costs, and increase productivity
  • But an analysis of recent academic research and industry data points to reduced rather than improved productivity 
  • Despite this, future technological developments will help to overcome the challenges facing automated terminals and bring about a new era of efficiency
