Terminal Industry Committee 4.0 invites you to our upcoming webinar entitled “The 4th Industrial Revolution in Ports – How the Terminal Industry is Setting the Standards” where our group of experts will present you the Terminal Industry Committee 4.0 (TIC 4.0), its goals, the challenges they faced and the opportunities that the technologies of the 4th Industrial revolution bring to the cargo handling industry.
Ports & Terminals have always been under pressure to perform efficient operations for its customers and this continues in the present day against the backdrop of ongoing industrial digitalisation, also called the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
The rapid advances in information technology and digitalization allow new possibilities for the cargo handling industry to improve processes by connecting all equipment and systems in real time, thus enabling seamless data exchanges. Digitalization isn’t only about one huge technological breakthrough or implementing technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT), ‘Big Data’, artificial intelligence (AI), automation, etc. The real advantage of this 4th Industrial Revolution firstly requires an agreement on industry standards and language for the cargo handling industry to later on develop and implement solutions based on the state of the art technologies that will boost performance and efficiency in port operations. And this is the core stone of TIC 4.0: bring together representative companies from both the Terminal Operators industry and Port Equipment Manufacturers and Suppliers to collectively work on the elaboration of such standards.
