Kalmar, part of Cargotec, and Navis, part of Kalmar Business Area within Cargotec, announced the delivery of the first OneTerminal automation solution to International Container Terminal Services Incorporated (ICTSI), at the Port of Melbourne, Australia.

OneTerminal brings together Kalmar and Navis software systems, equipment and services. The deployment was completed ahead of schedule, making Victoria International Container Terminal (VICT) the world’s first fully automated international container handling facility.

Melbourne’s newest container terminal, VICT is located north of Port Phillip Bay, at the mouth of the Yarra River, in the Port of Melbourne’s Webb Dock East. The 35-hectare terminal has an annual capacity of one million plus twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU), and an additional 400,000 TEUs on full build. VICT has a straight berth of 660 meters, which can accommodate two large vessels with capacities of up to 8,000-12,500 TEUs at once. 

Mark Welles, VP and GM of Asia Pacific at Navis, commented:

“The N4 Terminal System will allow VICT to optimise operations, speed turnaround times and deliver a new level of unprecedented efficiency in key areas of the terminal.”
