As a leading gateway for trade between the U.S. and Asia, the Port of Los Angeles must be ready for the next generation of container ships.

The Port of Los Angeles TraPac Terminal is a 24 hour a day, fully automated technologically advanced terminal. The TraPac Terminal Automation Project, part of $1 billion worth of planned capital improvements, features automatic stacking cranes and fully automated straddle carriers to advance the Port of Los Angeles’ competitive edge. Arcadis assisted with construction management services for phases 2-4 of the project.

The TraPac Terminal is one of the first terminals implementing the fully automated straddle carriers in the United States. Automation results in more-efficient use of capital assets, less downtime, reduced human error, lower capital and human asset costs, increased productivity and safety.
