Train loading area

Train loading area

Railway terminals:

  • Point-point model more than 20 OHC over 600m train lenght
  • Hub and spoke model longitudinal distribution of containers by OHC + SH without shunting of train

Process:

  • Direct loading by “upper OHCs” in each stack lane at the same time
  • Possible for ± 75% of wagons
  • Indirect loading by “under OHCs” via shunter without putting the container down
  • Only necessary for ± 25% of the wagons and only over a very short distance

OHC = stack overhead crane
