Transforming container handling into solution business

Remote operating station

This is the first in a series of four White Papers dealing with the transformation of container handling into solution business.

The word “solution” can mean almost anything depending on the context. These White Papers will open up its meaning in the context of automated container handling. Today, only around 10% of container terminals have some form of automated equipment. Most terminals are manually operated, and manual operation will be valid far into the future. These White Papers have been written specifically for terminal operators interested in exploring what automation can bring.


The first White Paper deals with the progress of automation and its corollary, digitization and computing, and the transforming role of OEMs such as Konecranes. The second focuses on automation and its field-proven benefits, arguing that the status quo isn’t good enough. The third argues that terminal design is the foundation of container terminal performance, for good or ill. The fourth deals with the transforming nature of service as intelligence and interconnectedness grow between machines and systems in container terminals.
