Smart Port Equipment Efficiency
Container throughput increased rapidly from 36 Mio. TEU in 1980 to approximately 849 Mio TEU in 2021. Adapting to this change was an enormous task for a highly complex system such as container terminals. Since 2020, the operational challenge has become even more demanding as one disruption followed the other...
Smart port equipment is one of the high-investment areas of a port. Still, it is also the key to high productivity—automated process helps to optimise the usage rate of the equipment, enhancing manual procedures of the past.
Smart Port Operations and Efficiency
Port terminals are an essential part of the supply chain for many businesses, and optimizing their logistics can help to improve efficiency and reduce costs. There are a number of factors to consider when optimizing port terminal operations, including the layout of the terminal, the location of critical facilities, the handling equipment, the management of vessels, and the storage and movement of containers within the terminal.
Automation and PDS
Ports are a vital part of the global supply chain, handling a tremendous amount of trade every day. In order to keep up with demand, ports must operate efficiently and safely. A position detection system can help automate the container handling process, making it safer and more efficient.
A position detection system can be used to automate the process of container handling at ports. This helps improve operational efficiency and reduce the risk of delays and accidents.
In this extended post we describe the benefits of and the need for position detection systems (PDS) when automating a container terminal.
