Abstract

See full text

A storage portion includes a first support portion and a second support portion that support a container. The storage portion is configured to change between a first state and a second state due to the second support portion being raised or lowered. An inert gas supply apparatus includes a connection portion at a height at which the connection portion is connected to the container in the first state and the connection portion is located away from and below the container in the second state. A transport moving body includes a third support portion supporting the container and a protrusion/retraction driving portion that causes the third support portion to protrude and retract. The third support portion is inserted into a transfer space when moved so as to protrude or retract by the protrusion/retraction driving portion. Movement path of the third support portion overlaps with the connection portion in a vertical direction view.
