At Amer­ica’s busiest port, high-speed ro­botic steve­dores on wheels

Bloomberg Businessweek (Asia) - - CONTENTS - ——John Lip­pert

At Amer­ica’s busiest port, ad­vanced al­go­rithms select the most ef­fi­cient route for au­ton­o­mous car­ri­ers to haul cargo con­tain­ers across the wharf. Pass­ing qui­etly within inches of each other at speeds as fast as 18 miles an hour, the orange, four-story self-driv­ing cranes stack con­tain­ers and de­liver them to trucks and trains with lit­tle or no hu­man in­ter­ven­tion.
