DP World is to implement its BOXBAY high-bay storage (HBS) system at its terminal in Busan, South Korea.

The technology will be integrated with Pusan ​​Newport Corporation (PNC), a DP World subsidiary, to increase the efficiency, safety and sustainability of the South Korean terminal.

A contract signing took place in Jebel Ali Free Zone, Dubai, in the presence of Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Group Chairman and CEO of DP World, and Burkhard Dahmen, Chairman and CEO of SMS group, the two partners behind BOXBAY.

BOXBAY is a fully automatic system with additional integrated safety functions. The system allows direct access to each container at any time, avoiding 350,000 unproductive movements per year.

According to DP World, this will reduce overall truck maintenance time by 20% and further improve PNC’s service delivery to its customers.

The HBS technology is seamlessly integrated into the existing way of ARMG/Truck operation as a retrofit on an existing empty storage space.

“We have long invested in new technologies to improve and modernize our ports and terminals,” said Tiemen Meester, COO Ports & Terminals, DP World. “With the introduction of the BOXBAY high-bay storage system, we will be able to better serve our customers while protecting our employees and reducing CO2 emissions from the environment.”

The company plans to power the system with solar energy generated by photovoltaic panels on the roof of the storage system.
