The two day event will feature sessions ranging from large scale equipment to emerging technologies and digitalisation practices which are streamlining port operations. Sessions will include strategy-based discussions on the opportunities and challenges that come with container terminal automation. Ultimately, all technologies and topics featured on the agenda will be helping ports to become more efficient, more sustainable and safer.
No two terminal automation projects are the same, with a number of challenges to consider at the pre-implementation stage, from selecting handling equipment, managing system integration, data & decision making and change management. This session will focus on these challenges and try to simplify the key decisions faced by terminal operators when planning and implementing a new terminal, or retrofitting an existing one.
One of the main challenges facing container terminals is building the return on investment required to give automation projects the green light. This session will discuss the tricky question of calculating ROI on future projects and how terminal operators can select the equipment and or technology that best suits their operational needs.
Artificial Intelligence has the power to optimise operations while providing efficiency and cost savings. This session will discuss AI as the key ingredient for an efficient automated or semi-automated container terminal, showcasing successful applications and uncovering the challenges that prevent container terminals from sourcing the type of high quality data that AI systems require to thrive.
Digitalised, connected container terminals will need to be established if we are to take advantage of the automation and technologies that will drive container terminals into a more efficient, sustainable and economical future. This session will look at the steps container terminals can take to continue their digitalisation, while showcasing the technologies which will enable fast collection, transfer, visibility and processing of operational data; such as 5G, IoT, wireless private networks and digital twins.
