Container vessels are becoming larger and larger. At the same time, shipping alliances are changing and therefore the vessels that dock are also changing.
The handling capacity at the quayside is one of the key criteria for the profitability of the container terminal. Flexible planning of the docking positions for the daily changing vessels is essential.

Find out how igus mobile SPO technology can transform container terminals, making shore power connections more flexible, and more profitable.
