Empty Container Block Connector
In the NGICT system it is also possible to stack the empty containers in blocks in the same way as it is done at the traditional empty depot.
As in the current empty depots a block of piled containers can be formed anywhere in the stack area. Instead of bracing and lashing activities, in the NGICT system can the stability of such a block be assured by laying a specific designed horizontal frame work on the lop layer. That frame work can be lifted, transported and laid down by the spreader of the OHBC within the daily processing. After the storm period that frame work will be lifted and transported by the OHBC.
