Increasing Adoption of Automated Terminals to Fuel Straddle Carrier Demand

Automation has not left any industry untouched and is spreading at a significant pace as one of the most prominent trends across industrial applications, including shipping.

Automated terminals have been gaining substantial traction with growing focus toward high productivity and efficient operation.

Moreover, automated solutions have penetrated the container terminal space in a bid to solve the challenges faced by larger ships apropos of effective containerization.

With automated terminals, waiting and turnaround times for ships is reduced, which is driving their adoption across major ports worldwide.

This factor is likely to present potential pathways of growth for straddle carriers in the coming years.

Rising Private-Public Partnerships in Ports to Stimulate Growth  

Growth in international trade, particularly using sea routes, has presented lucrative opportunities for port handling equipment such as straddle carriers.

However, high initial investments in port handling equipment coupled with heavy manpower is likely to impact the trading scenario.

In a bid to facilitate trade progress, various countries are adopting private-public partnerships wherein management and operational responsibilities are delegated to private companies with assets and land delegated to the government.

This trend is expected to relieve the high initial investment tension associated with terminal development at ports.

This factor in combination with increasing focus toward enhancement of production has significantly pushed the growth of intermodal container leasing sector, consequently stimulating growth of straddle carrier market.

Development of Unmanned Straddle Carriers in the Offing – New Trend Fostering Adoption

Largely influenced by the automation concept, manufacturers of straddle carriers are focusing on investing in research and development to introduced modern variants that are equipped with Artificial Intelligence.

With Internet of Things (IoT) proliferating in every sector, manufacturers have leveraged its potential to develop Artificial Intelligence unmanned straddle carriers.

For instance, Chinese company, ZPMC, involved in the straddle carrier manufacturing has come up with an AI straddle carrier.

This has resulted in reduction of terminal staff that can be used to carry out other tasks, along with horizontal transportation efficiency enhancement of port terminals by more than 50 percent.

In addition, the company claims that the accuracy quotient of autonomous AI straddle carrier is almost 100 percent, facilitating higher productivity and efficiency.

An Adaptive Approach to Modern-day Research Needs

Strong Demand for Highly Efficient Shipping Containers

Shipping industry has witnessed significant improvements on the back of technological advances since the past few years.

Enhancements in straddle carriers have translated into a higher success quotient for container ships in terms of cargo handling.

Moreover, manufacturers shifting focus toward gearless variants without use of shipboard cranes has resulted in increasing demand for effective shipping containers such as straddle carriers.

In addition, growing demand for speed-up unloading and loading of cargo has provided an impetus to the adoption of highly efficient and superior capacity containers such as straddle carriers in turn supporting the growth of the straddle carrier market.

Overcapacity and Low Freight Rates to Confine Growth

Increasing dependence of industries such as manufacturing, mining and energy on the shipping industry on the back of rising requirement of raw material supply and end products has resulted in growth of bulk trading.

Bulk commodity trading, accounting for a significant percentage in overall sea-borne trade, is expected to present potential growth prospects for use of straddle carriers.

Large fleet size coupled with relatively slow global trade has translated into overcapacity conditions with falling freight rates.

For instance, in 2016, BDI fell to 290 owing to slow economic growth in China. Moreover, low freight rates and overcapacity have resulted in increase in bulk trade.

This factor is likely to emboss an adverse impact on the shipping container business, in turn negatively impacting the growth of the straddle carrier market.
