Working more efficiently and faster thanks to complete (semi) automation
The fact that APM terminals are virtually fully automated, including the semi-automatic Super Quay Cranes (SQCs), enables work to be performed more efficiently and faster. It means the customer sooner earns back the investment made in a large seagoing ship. Despite the fact that such a crane at a distance looks the same as existing quay cranes, it is most definitely not just a copy that is made somewhat larger and wider here and there. There were numerous technical challenges in the project and many things that are obvious with the 'normal' container cranes had to be well considered here.
