Watch new video footage of the world’s largest automated terminal, the fourth phase of the Yangshan deepwater port in Shanghai, that was opened in mid-December. The terminal has over 100 pieces of intelligent equipment.

The fourth phrase of Yangshan port takes up an area of nearly a square mile with two 70,000 dead-weight tonnage (DWT) berths and five 50,000 DWT berths. Currently, 50 driverless automatic guided vehicles (AGV), 10 ship-to-shore (STS) cranes, and 40 rail-mounted gantry cranes will be handling cargo. The port plan calls for an increase to 130 AGVs, 26 overhead cranes, and 120 rail-mounted gantry cranes.
