This Port Technology International article about Terminal Automation by Francisco J. Grau Cavanillas, Managing Director at Orbita Ports & Terminals, was written before the COVID-19 pandemic. However, it makes even more sense under present circumstances.
We are now aware of the importance of having automated systems in our intermodal and maritime terminals:
- To gather and trace all the information
- To communicate with other stakeholders
- To make possible a remote monitoring
- To analyse KPIs and be able to anticipate possible issues
Let’s face the challenges. This is a great opportunity to consolidate a common technological knowledge to build a new operations culture.
