9:30 AM WORKSHOP A: AUTOMATION IN THE PORTS SECTOR - GO DIGITAL OR GO HOME!

Although automation has been a key trend in the port sector, this industry has been slow in adopting a digital mindset in its business operations. Usually, automation and digitisation comes at a cost and there is always a case to be built where you can demonstrate return on investment for automation.

This workshop will address:
  • How automation and digitisation can improve port operation efficiency and deliver better value for customers
  • How can structured data and advanced analytics in automation make ports and terminals efficient
  • Road maps for port automation - Where to start? What to start with? How to do it?
  • Port 4.0 demands substantial changes in the operating models of the port sector. How can automation help to unlock the full potential of Port 4.0?
