Last Friday the Los Angeles department of the Austrian Chamber of Commerce awarded the so called “Business Oscar” for the 10th time. Kuenz won the silver medal in the category “Trendsetter”.
Every year, the Los Angeles department of the Austrian Chamber of Commerce (WKÖ) honors outstanding achievements of Austrian companies with the US-A-BIZ AWARD, also called “Business-Oscar”. In the category “Trendsetter”, Kuenz was nominated for the globally unique automation concept at the CSX terminal in Fairburn, Georgia. Six fully automated Intermodal Cranes serve a total of 7 tracks, 9 container stacks and 500 truck loading lanes. In addition to the efficient handling of the increasing container throughput, the highest level of personal safety is achieved, since all manual interventions are only carried out via remote operating station in the terminal building. At the US-A-BIZ-AWARD gala in Los Angeles Kuenz narrowly failed to win the Oscar, nevertheless we are very proud of the silver medal.
