Ports and terminals

The industry benchmark for container terminals.

With increasing trade volumes and stricter environmental legislation, marine terminals are facing ever-greater pressure to expand their operations while simultaneously improving efficiency and sustainability.

In order to meet these twin challenges and also address the lack of skilled labour and the need to maintain safety, terminal operators are looking to automate and digitalise their operations. Fully electric and hybrid solutions are seen as an important part of the move towards more sustainable operations.

As a pioneer of both automation and eco-efficient equipment solutions, we can support you with an offering that brings together the market’s widest equipment portfolio, proven and safe automation solutions and value-adding services delivered through our global network.
