Ports & Terminals - Why attend?

Why attend?

Supply chains are fundamentally changing: Disruptive technologies such as robotics, artificial intelligence, 3D printing, digital and nano-technologies, cloud computing, and big data, offer immense possibilities for box trades and could reshape “business as usual” for container supply chains. Learn how to adapt to the challenges of disruption and digitalisation, and avenues to pre-empting the entry of new digital enterprises into the container space.

Automating, digitising and innovating your port operations: Automation and digitisation is still comparatively new within the port industry and is increasingly being implemented around the world and the pace of new technologies is catching the
industry by surprise. With a new concept, there are many differing opinions regarding the speed and scale of implementation to deliver the required quantum leap in terminal performance that is expected from automation and digitisation.

How will the landscape of port infrastructure look in the future? To support competitiveness in the global economy, it is essential that ports and terminals expand, upgrade, modernize and maintain transportation infrastructure. After two decades of dynamic growth and foreign direct investment into Latin America, many countries have made substantial progress in improving port infrastructure.

TRANSFORMING SUPPLY CHAINS: RISK, CHALLENGES, OPPORTUNITIES

Disruptive technologies such as robotics, artificial intelligence, 3D printing, digital and nano-technologies, cloud computing, and big data, offer immense possibilities for box trades and  could reshape “business as usual” for container supply chains. But how cognisant are supply chain stakeholders of these opportunities – and the threats they also carry for conventional container business models?

THE LATIN AMERICA TRADE & INFRASTRUCTURE INVESTMENT FORUM

To support competitiveness in the global economy, it is essential that ports and terminals expand, upgrade, modernize and maintain transportation infrastructure. After two decades of dynamic growth and foreign direct investment into Latin America, many countries have made substantial progress in improving port infrastructure.

AUTOMATION,  DIGITALIZATION & INNOVATION

Automation and digitisation is still comparatively new within the port industry and is increasingly being implemented around the world. Keeping high-tech, autonomous and unmanned equipment up and running imposes new and difficult challenges for ports and terminals.

With a new concept, there are many differing opinions regarding the speed and scale of implementation to deliver the required quantum leap in terminal performance that is expected from automation and digitisation.
