Container yard, Port of Le Havre
The temporary storage of containers for ship-to-land and land-to-ship
intermodal operations is often extensive. In this case, the stacking
requirements of two containers to be picked or dropped by straddle
demands an even more extensive use of space since the density is
limited to a height of two containers. The advantage of such an
operation is the quick access to any desired container as
limited sorting is invovled.
