The layout design of smart port is evolving. With the introduction of the 4th industrial revolution technology, the productivity of the ACT (Automated Container terminal) is surpassing that of the conventional method. In this chapter, the author focuses on designing the layout of ACT of a case terminal. ACT area is divided into QC (Quay Crane) Set Back, QC Rail span, AGV handling area under QC, AGV road and working area, WSTP (Water Side Transfer Point), CY Block, LSTP (Land Side Transfer Point), support facility and gate facility. The data required for the ACT design is the operation data of the neighboring terminals. The operation data include the container dwell time, max stacking height, CY utilization ratio, working days per year, peaking factor and the throughput by export, import, transshipment. Furthermore, it is necessary to seize the ratio of container by full, empty, reefer, oversize, dangerous container type, TEU conversion ratio and gate transit time, etc. Here, we propose three types of ACT such as Y type, L type and U type. The process of designing these drawings, formula and parameters will be described
