Content and Learning Outcomes

The desire to increasing efficiency in port operations has allowed ports to reach unprecedented levels of productivity. However, in many ports globally further gains are possible by harnessing the power of digital technologies through information transparency, simplified document handling, automation and real-time data analysis. Although at their infancy in many ports, ICT technologies are fast-tracking a Port 4.0 vision. But beyond the technology, it is paramount for port mangers and operators to identify the real issues that technologies should be addressing, and these might not necessarily be those that vendors are trying to promote.

This webinar will deal with the current developments in ICT technologies in ports, reviewing the most promising ones and identifying which ones are likely to make a difference in port management and operations. The webinar will also address how technologies should be framed within a port management vision and how innovation is successful when it addresses those issues that are critical to the port.

Participants will learn about the latest advances in port logistics management and have the opportunity to exchange ideas within the group. This training program will not only give new insights, but also help the management and the company to make their port management operations smarter.
