BOXBAY becomes reality - the world's first high-bay warehouse for containers is taking shape

The first fully automated high-bay store (HBS) for freight containers is currently under construction at Terminal 4 / Jebel Ali in Dubai. We look forward to putting the BOXBAY HBS system into operation in autumn 2020 and to convincing port operators and trade visitors from all over the world of the competence of the joint venture partners DP World and SMS group / AMOVA.

As expected, the assembly and installation is running smoothly and without problems, because this innovation is based on a technology that has been used in other applications for decades: AMOVA's automated high-bay warehouse for coils weighing up to 50 tons in the area of steel mill logistics. With over 80 references worldwide, we have the confidence and know-how to transfer our mature technology to a new market.

The stacker cranes are already installed in the warehouse aisle that they will serve in the future. We are very happy that the work is progressing so well. Many thanks to all teams involved for their great performance!
