These cranes were chosen for their performance, ease of operation, and ease of delivery – the latter a key consideration for the inland container handling terminal, which is located a few kilometres from the sea port at George Town. The close collaboration between PACI, TBA and Konecranes resulted in a timely go-live where Autostore TOS was fully aligned with the erection of the BOXHUNTER RTGs.

The deal between all three parties is strategically important, explains Alfredo Ramirez, Konecranes Sales Manager, Americas: “This deal follows upon our first BOXHUNTER RTG deal in South America. It shows there’s a real need for this kind of innovative container crane in the Americas and the need for specialist supporting technology to assist with the smooth implementation and operation of the equipment.”

TBA Autostore TOS is working at over 35 locations worldwide. It is scalable, easy-to-use software that allows users to control the movement and storage of containerized cargo in and around a terminal or port. The user can optimise assets, labour and equipment performance, plan workloads and receive real-time information to improve decision-making.
