Investment in Port Terminals
Wednesday 19th May 2021, 3:30PM – 4:45PM BST
The discussion of emerging technologies and the adoption of automation equipment are nothing without the discussion of the business case. This session will discuss where investment dollars should be allocated to get the best return in the terminal, and how to source the funding for projects. Why should technology solutions be included in the planning phase of infrastructure projects and what are the potential benefits?
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?
