SACO’S First ETV System Operational in the South Pacific


Following a period of detailed preparations with the end-user, SACO supplied the first fully automated ETV system in the South Pacific.

The system was commissioned in June 2016 and includes a four-level 15ft ETV, designed and built by SACO with a storage rack for 300 ULD positions, lowering build / break stations, dolly docks and truck docks.

The FOX cargo IT system enables full remote and automated control of the handling / storage equipment through Profibus links with the various PLC’s and SCADA visualisation. The cargo IT system is interfaced with the client’s IT system for data transfer of ULD information to enable advance planning, on-line control and monitoring of their inventory, breakdown and transfer operations.

During the past years SACO has undergone a significant expansion of activities due to increased order volumes whilst also effecting improvements in our engineering, project management and production efficiencies.

During 2015 and 2016 we modernised and expanded the office space at our head office in Mierlo as well as opening new production facilities nearby in Deurne.

These developments will ensure that we are better equipped to handle small and larger projects simultaneously.

SACO's portfolio includes extensive solutions for the handling of air cargo unit load devices (pallets and containers).
