The Cathay Pacific Cargo Terminal incorporates innovative features and advanced technology systems to ensure efficiency, reliability and visibility, setting new benchmarks for the industry.
The fully-automated Materials Handling System (MHS) is the backbone of CPCT, ensuring efficient cargo movement and activities across the seven-storey air cargo terminal. The installation of an Uninterrupted Power Supply ensures 99.9% system reliability; and specially designed routing logic enables system availability under all circumstances.
100% CCTV coverage with more than 400 CCTV HD cameras installed to support remote monitoring and fault fixing as required, minimising system downtime.
The fully automated CHS is designed with strategic combinations and use of 31 hoists and 18 elevated transfer vehicles, offering more than 2,400 storage positions for facilitating the fast movement of unit load devices (ULDs).
BHS provides 4,200 storage positions for bulk cargo. The system is linked with the Examination Hall of Hong Kong Custom and Excise Department faclitation govemment inspection.
A dedicated zone on the ground floor of the Terminal is designed to support fast transhipment handling, offering unmatched flexibility to support hub operations.
The minimum connection time is reduced from eight hours to five hours, and even three hours under prior arrangement.
Cathay Pacific Cargo Terminal adopts “Just-in-Time” operational concept. Advanced technology is deployed to shape a “Come-and-Go” Processing Cargo Terminal, significantly reducing the waiting and processing time at CPCT.
Advanced technology is extensively deployed at CPCT to facilitate proactive, real-time updates on all activities of each shipment within the Terminal. All data and information collected through barcode scanning on the floor are fed to the integrated Terminal Control Centre. Tracking and tracing is made easier than ever.
