Cassette system – a vital part of port productivity

About the customer

DP World has created a high-quality integrated business – two deep water ports with freight rail terminals at London Gateway and Southampton, a rapidly expanding logistics park and an advanced software business providing online links to customers and border control.

With this, they provide the right trading infrastructure and smart logistical solutions for our customers. Each year, we transport around 3.6 million TEUs – enough to stretch from London to Buenos Aires and back.

What’s more, over £43 billion worth of goods in these containers travel to and from countries beyond the EU.

Costumers need

The port needed a system that would allow for transporting containers between the automatic stacking cranes and rail head, as well as between the customs inspection area and adjacent logistics park.

A safe system, able to handle all different locations was needed.


The solution

The Liftec translifter decouples containers on the cassette at different transfer points. Only 18 translifters are needed to keep a total of 200 cassettes on the move.

By having the most advanced equipment supplied by NT Liftec, the port has been able to reduce the number of equipment needed by using only one transportation method, Cassette System.

This enables the port to reduce fuel consumption, CO2 footprint, service costs as well as capital investment costs.
