Problems & Solutions
Problems In Conventionally Operated Container Terminals
Solutions Provided By Our Patented Facility
1. Increasing volume requires additional land.
- Coastal acreage is scarce and expensive.
- Taxpayers bear the cost of acquisition.
1. Our patented system requires less than 35 acres per 1,000,000 TEU.
- Valuable acreage would be released for other uses.
- There would be no acquisition costs.
2. Increasing volume requires more extensive infrastructure.
- Construction of additional roads.
- Construction of additional railway systems.
- Taxpayers bear the cost of this construction.
2. Our patented system requires no further infrastructure modifications.
- No additional roads required.
- No additional railway systems required.
- There are no costs to the taxpayer.
3. Increasing volume creates massive logjams within terminals.
- Loss of container handling efficiency.
- Additional equipment required. (Reach trucks, RTG's, RMG's, etc.)
- Equipment costs and loss of time costs are passed on to consumers.
3. Our patented system is programmed to handle this foreseeable increase.
- Regardless of volume, containers are handled just twice.
- Our system utilizes only fork trucks. Other stacking vehicles will be outmoded.
- No costs are borne by consumers.
4. Increasing volume creates traffic jams and gate tie-ups.
- Truck owner-operators spend long hours, and sometimes days, waiting in line without pay.
- These underpaid truck owner-operators, on piecework wages, are leaving the industry.
- Conditions have been described as a "national crisis".
4. Our revolutionary operations eliminate traffic jams and gate tie-ups.
- Our delivery system does away with gates, clerks and consequent waiting lines.
- Our delivery system is operated from within the terminal premises by salaried drivers, not piecework drivers.
- This will prove to be the solution to the "national crisis".
5. All problems are caused by inefficient and poorly programmed container yard operations.
- Hasty and random stacking of containers hampers tracking, and retrieval.
- Repeated Equipment Repositioning adds to the problems of locating each container.
- Equipment and personnel are tied up in unnecessary searches.
- Equipment damage, personal injury and cargo losses are dramatically increased.
- Both taxpayer and consumer bear the cost of this inefficiency.
5. Our patented system tracks every container from our pier to the consumers pier.
- Each container is stored in a predetermined slot.
- Because no container ever needs to be repositioned, immediate retrieval and delivery is undertaken.
- Minimum and constant numbers of equipment and personnel operate our systems.
- Equipment damage, personal injury and cargo losses are dramatically decreased.
- All cost savings will be passed on to taxpayers and consumers.
6. U.S. Customs inspections are severely hampered in every terminal.
- Hasty and random stacking make systematic inspection difficult.
- Access to tightly stacked containers is impossible.
- Less than 4% of all containers can be inspected. No empty containers can be inspected!
- Cargo fraud losses are estimated to be $170 billion annually.
6. U.S. Customs inspections will be smooth, efficient and unhampered.
- Our software assigns each container to a predetermined slot.
- Immediate access is always available to inspectors.
- Every container will be Inspected! All empty containers will be inspected as well.
- Cargo losses will be greatly reduced, and eventually eliminated.
