Process design RMG storage


A container terminal in Hamburg


The steady growth in the worldwide container traffic requires an expansion of the Port of Hamburg. In this context, the new container terminal was built, which is characterised by an extensive automated container handling. Ship-to-shore cranes, automatic guided vehicles (AGV) and rail mounted gantry cranes (RMG) are used at this container terminal. Furthermore, a site for combined transport has been established.

The main task in this project was to plan and to realise efficient processes and logistics networks in order to build a worldwide unique automated container terminal.

HPMport as a part of the planning and commissioning team were assigned

  • to plan and implement efficient processes and logistics structures for the automatic block storage with RMG and
  • to support the ramp-up phase after the opening of the highly automated terminals as well as to optimise the storage system.
