R. Nales Elektrohangbanen voor de overslag van pallets uit zeeschepen.
Literature survey, Report 88.3.2379B, Transport Engineering and Logistics.

In this report a monorail system for the transhipment of pallets from sea-ships is discussed. On a closed track, hanging over the ship, several powered trolleys transport the pallets.

Several possibilities of hanging the load at a trolley are discussed, as well as a method to control the moves of the load.

The control exists of three parts: a central unit, the unit in the trolley and the human operators.
