Facility

Ingate

Ingate / Outgate

At the Ingate, we handle the reception process for container loading and unloading. With the introduction of the latest Yard Operation System, we automatically read the license plates of newly arrived trailers, instantly match them with container registration information, process accepted loading and unloading jobs swiftly, and determine and instruct the container transfer location.

Remote Automated Rubber Tire Gantry Crane (RTG)

Remote Automated Rubber Tire Gantry Crane (RTG)

For the first time in the world, we have realized remote operation as a rubber-tired gantry crane. The Remote Automated RTG System constantly controls the situation of unmanned RTGs. Additionally, we have developed a terminal management system aimed at standardized operations in RTG operations. We have minimized 3M (Muda (Waste), Mura (Unevenness), Muri (Impossible)) movements in the introduced facilities, aiming not only for energy reduction but also for maximizing the operation of all facilities, eliminating the introduction of 'reliable backup equipment'.

Remote Control Room

Remote Control Room

In the 'Remote Control Room,' seven operating desks are installed, allowing remote operation while monitoring video footage of unmanned automated RTGs. By operating 22 RTG with a few operators, we have significantly improved operational efficiency. Furthermore, in addition to addressing future issues related to declining birth rates and aging populations, we have improved working conditions in environments such as late nights, extreme cold, and extreme heat, ensuring the terminal operates 24/7 throughout the year.

AGV (Automated Guided Vehicle)

AGV (Automated Guided Vehicle)

AGV (Automated Guided Vehicle) is an unmanned container transport cart that is autonomously controlled via wireless communication from the terminal operation management system. By coordinating with the Automated RTG, it maximizes the capabilities of the gantry crane, ensuring timely handling of ship cargoes.

Gantry Crane

Gantry Crane

Rising above the deep waters (16m) of the quay, Japan boasts some of the largest gantry cranes in the world. These cranes feature the cutting-edge Mono-box structure in the crane's lifting part. By consolidating two boom arms into one without compromising strength, we achieved lightweight construction. Moreover, the outreach extends 59m from the quay, equivalent to 22 container rows, accommodating the world's largest container ships currently in operation. This setup greatly enhances the efficiency of container handling operations.

Outgate

Ingate / Outgate

At the Outgate, we conduct efficient and reliable container unloading processes using handheld terminals. Checkers are positioned at each lane to match the container number displayed on the handheld terminal with the container registration information, check seal numbers and damage status, and transmit data. Information is promptly processed, and an Equipment Interchange Receipt (EIR) is issued from an unmanned kiosk, and imported containers are transported to their destinations.
