The world’s largest automated container berth has been built in Eastern China.

This new transport hub, which is located in the north of the mouth of the Yangtze River, was created within the framework of the “One Belt, One Way” and “Yangtze River Economic Belt” programs.

Two new berths on the territory are fully automated, and operate on unmanned container trucks and cranes, which are equipped with advanced visual recognition technologies and 5G cellular networks.

In addition, in order to ensure the energy supply of the berth, onshore power supply systems with a capacity of 3 thousand kVA were installed. They are capable of servicing two container ships with a deadweight of 100 thousand tons or five container ships with a deadweight of 10 thousand tons.

Now the Lucy Port Terminal in Tongzhou Bay can handle up to 1.4 million TEU (Twenty-foot Equivalent Unit) containers per year.
