In a statement IPC II said the ATT system was much more cost effective than a straddle carrier system, with the steel infrastructure for one complete ASC interchange zone costing $100,000 (6 ATT lanes) and each ATT costing $230,000 per unit. TTL has ordered 50 ATTs for its new terminal.
Gaussin is also working with TTL to study full automation. In late December Gaussin announced the parties had signed a letter of intent to “study the desirability of fully automating the terminal for heightened productivity and safety.” The agreement covers testing activities and terminal simulation and, as part of their partnership, TTL has been granted an exclusive license for Gaussin products in Indonesia. This includes ATTs and systems developed for logistics, warehousing and airport applications by Gaussin and another partner, BA Systèmes.
