GUANGZHOU's Port of Nansha has opened the first terminal in the Pearl River Delta with automated gantry cranes and self-driving trucks, reports the American Journal of Transportation.

The new terminal has a designed annual throughput capacity of 4.9 million TEU. The annual container throughput of the entire Nansha port is expected to exceed 24 million TEU.
The terminal is part of the fourth phase of the modernisation project at the Port of Nansha which will combine multimodal services related to sea, river and railway service in the area, according to Guangzhou Port Group (GPG).
The fourth phase of the port also includes four 100,000-tonne berths and supporting container barge berths.
Construction of the new terminal began in late 2018, having integrated advanced technologies such as Beidou navigation, 5G communications, artificial intelligence and autonomous vehicles.
"The terminal, which features smart and independent operations and low-carbon emissions, has contributed to the promotion of automated wharf technology," said GPG chairman Li Yibo.
Mr Li added that with the onset of operations, the new terminal will be integrated with the Nansha port's other terminals to form a specialised and large-scale terminal cluster, helping to greatly improve the port's handling capacity.
Nansha's state of the art automated terminal complements their new international logistics facility that offers both dry and cold warehousing along with their new on-dock rail.
