Optimising ports and the supply chain through collaboration, data sharing and transparency
How to increase efficiency through all aspects of logistics and port operations. The latest results on smart ports.
Two day event on how to automate processes, standardise information flow to increase transparency and optimise the supply chain within ports.
Key topic areas included:
Smart Ports Barcelona took place at the Smart City Expo World Congress, in collaboration with the Port of Barcelona, and delivered two days of discussion and debate on:
Smarter Port Operations
What are challenges, priorities and new technologies which will enable ‘smarter’ operations of ports and terminals?
In an increasingly digital world, how has this movement transferred to the shipping industry?
What are the benefits for port and terminal operators?
What should be automated in a port to improve operations?
To what extent do automation processes have a tangible effect on port efficiencies?
Can AI and predictive analytics be relied on?
Supply Chain Management
How to optimise the supply chain process? Should processes be centralised? How can data be shared more effectively?
Accommodating different vessels
What are the varying requirements for different fleets; cruise, containers, gas and bulk cargo? How are ports and terminals adapting to changing market demands?
What technology should operators invest in to improve digital communication and e-navigation?
Create the port of the future
Industry innovators showed attendees what they are doing now to create smart, integrated ports which meet the requirements of smart operating systems on ships, efficient offloading of cargo and sustainability objectives.
