Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It's not a system for moving containers, but for parking semi-trailers (so the road tractors and their drivers don't have to idle and don't use up space and traction energy by travelling on the train). IMO a turning slider container system would speed up loading at the train-to-truck end, but not at the train-to-ship or train-to-train end.
