BoxBay represents a new and intelligent High Bay Storage (HBS) system that will be ready in time for the Dubai Expo 2020 with a pilot project scheduled at Jebel Ali Terminal 4. It is a new international joint venture by DP World and industrial engineering specialists, SMS Group, that aims to change the way that containers are handled in ports with smart innovation.
With the use of a disruptive technology, the patented design and rack structure of BoxBay creates unique advantages with containers stored up to eleven stories high, delivering the capacity of a conventional terminal in a third of the surface area.
Scalable to any location and fully automated with direct access to each container, BOXBAY eliminates unpaid and unproductive reshuffling. It enables significant gains in handling speed, energy efficiency, safety and a major reduction in operating costs. This new revolutionary technology is set to handle metal products that weigh as much as 50 tonnes each in racks as high as 50 metres.
