Kalmar and Navis, parts of Cargotec, have delivered the first OneTerminal automation solution to International Container Terminal Services Incorporated (ICTSI) at the Port of Melbourne, Australia.

The deployment has made Victoria International Container Terminal (VICT) the world's first fully automated international container handling facility, according to Cargotec.

Located north of Port Phillip Bay at the mouth of the Yarra River in the Port of Melbourne's Webb Dock East, the 35-hectare terminal has an annual capacity of one million plus TEU and an additional 400,000 TEUs on full build.

VICT has a straight berth of 660 meters, which can accommodate two large vessels with capacities of up to 8000-12,500 TEUs at once. VICT was designed and is now equipped, to be fully automated, making it the most advanced container terminal in the world.
