Boxbay Applications

Port of the future

BOXBAY is not only the solution for normal container ports, but also offers numerous possibilities for various locations. No matter whether you are planning a new terminal “on a greenfield site”, replacing an existing infrastructure or want to implement container logistics in an environment with limited space - BOXBAY is the scalable high bay store concept for everywhere.

The port operator will benefit from a significantly increased storage capacity, as soon as the first part of the BOXBAY system has been commissioned. The terminal operations will not be affected in any way during the subsequent expansion activities because the BOXBAY store installed during the first stage has already increased the throughput and the storage capacity by a factor of three compared to a conventional store of the same footprint.

BOXBAY economics add up

The cost-effectiveness of a BOXBAY investment depends on individual location factors – especially on space and manpower costs. The higher the costs of the space required, the more interesting the BOXBAY solution is. In cases where expansion space would first need to be developed at great cost, BOXBAY also offers additional benefits.

In many regions, the investment costs for a BOXBAY system are already lower than those for conventional systems. If the lower operating costs of a BOXBAY system are also taken into account, the picture looks even better in terms of cost-effectiveness. At the same time, for many ports BOXBAY is the only means of expanding and thus securing added value.

As well as safeguarding and expanding existing added value, BOXBAY offers additional value creation possibilities. For example, if more space that can be used for other business activities outside of storage operations is freed up by storing more on the same surface area – along the lines of a fulfillment center. This "value chain compression" can further enhance the economic performance of a port – and thus create and secure prosperity.
