GLOBAL’S AMAZING RACE: PART 2

In part two of Global’s Amazing Race, Joseph Bonney gets a firsthand look at the exciting arrival of the first five automated RMG cranes.

THE FIRST FIVE AUTOMATED RMG CRANES ARRIVE AMIDST MUCH EXCITEMENT.

On October 17th, the first five of twenty automated Rail Mounted Gantry (RMG) cranes arrived at Global Terminal. The cranes, designed and manufactured by Konecranes, were a remarkable sight to behold as they were unloaded with precise choreography over the course of three days. Each crane is 80 feet tall and can lift up to 40 tons at a time. The remaining fifteen cranes are expected to arrive in the near future as Global Terminal continues to prepare for the April 2014 go-live date.

GLOBAL’S AMAZING RACE: PART 1

Journal of Commerce writer and reporter Joseph Bonney will be doing an exclusive series on the expansion project at Global Terminal. It is the first time that the JOC has ever done something like this and we are honored and excited to work with them on it. Follow the series for a true insider’s perspective on how the project is progressing as we race toward the April 16, 2014 go-live date.

Automation at Global Terminal will increase efficiency, profitability and safety.

In this article published by The Star-Ledger, the Global Terminal team discusses the expansion project, the new automated technology being implemented and the effect both will have on shippers and consumers. Upon completion next April, the expanded terminal will be able to double its annual capacity from 680,000 TEUs to 1.7 million while also increasing safety measures for both its employees and visiting operators.

The new automated truck gates are officially open.

Final testing of Global Terminal’s innovative, automated truck gate system has been completed on schedule and is running smoothly. The advanced system includes 19 in-gates and 10 out-gates and uses RFID and OCR technology to ensure trucker safety while increasing efficiency.

Global Terminal featured in the Journal of Commerce.

By this time next year, Global Terminal will be the most technologically advanced container terminal on the East Coast. The Journal of Commerce talks to James Devine (President & CEO, GCT USA) and Richard Ceci (Vice President of Information Technology, GCT USA) about the expansion project and how their use of innovative technology will increase safety and productivity.

Global Terminal’s deep water berth expansion is complete.

The berth extension at Global Terminal is complete, making it officially big ship ready. Located outside the Bayonne Bridge, the 2,700-foot deep water berth makes Global Terminal the only facility in the New York harbor able to accommodate vessels over 8,000 TEUs.

Big ship ready in 2014.

Global Container Terminals is proud to announce the expansion of its Global Terminal in Bayonne, New Jersey. Once finished in 2014, the 167-acre terminal will be primed to handle the big ships transiting the Suez and Panama Canals. Unrestricted by air or water draft, the focus of the state-of-the-art facility is increased safety and efficiency.
