With the completion and operation of Yangshan Deepwater Terminal Phase IV, the fully automated container terminal has formally begun to enter the public's vision. As an extremely important part of container handling and transportation, handing technology has also been deeply considered and studied by many scholars. In order to grasp the direction of handing processes of automation container terminal, based on discussing the application status and advantages and disadvantages of the existing traditional and automated container terminal process system, this paper analyses the development trend of automated container handling technology in China ,according to the development of automated lock and disassembly device, remote control of quayside bridge, intelligent driving, new energy, automated tire crane and other equipment technology.
