Digital Port

Includes the digital transformation of port processes, by collecting new data, evolving and learning.

The innovations used within digital ports include:

  • Robotics – by intergrating automated systems
  • Process Automation – minimising human involvement in processes by using technologies such as driverless trucks, drones and crewless vessels
  • Decision-making automation – planning optimization such as the automation of vehicle and equipment scheduling.
  • Digitalisation – the use of technologies for all operations such as IoT, big data, 5G and AI.

Using these innovations a Digital Port can have more efficient supply chain management and operations, turning them into Smart Ports.
