Terminal Automation: Beyond the trend

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.
