If the system is implemented when planning a new container terminal, construction costs can be reduced.
If it is used in a existing port terminal, the container terminal can recover an area which can be used for container storage, for traffic of port trucks or to improve the layout of the yard equipment and stacking blocks.
Storage capacity can be increased to about 5 containers in depth, 6 containers in height, and the complete quay length and could increase the load mobilized in the same proportion.
In the case of a finger pier, the hatch cover platforms can be placed in cantilever over the water. Civil works and the construction budget for the terminal can therefore be improved.
