Extracting the most value from your terminal with big data and analytics projects
Wednesday 19th May 2021, 5:15PM – 6:15PM BST
With the collection of high-quality data becoming more efficient each year, we will investigate how terminals can extract the greatest value from their data to increase visibility and drive-up productivity.

• How Big Data and Analytics can provide ‘continuous improvement’ in the terminal.
• How the IoT and a digital platform help to fully digitise terminals, collect data from every machine on site and facilitate a smooth implementation to automated solutions.
• Deeper insights and how they can read data and allow terminals to react to real-time problems, predict future situations and prevent issues.
• Training management to take full advantage of Big Data and Analytics technologies.
• Can Big Data and Analytics yield the same value in smaller or less equipped terminals?
