Automation focus @ TOC Asia

Is automation the answer to all operational issues in the terminal?

TOC Asia, 24 – 25 April, Singapore - inconjunction with Singapore Maritime Week

22 March 2018

TOC Asia again offers free to attend technical seminars as part of its offering to the global port and terminal communities. The two-day TECH TOC conference programme has digitalization at the heart of all discussions and features many global manufacturers alongside regional terminal operators. Sessions cover Port & Landside Logistics, Technology & Innovation, Training & Skills, Clean Technologies and Automation.

Seminar in Focus: Automation

In a special two-part session on Automation, the audience will gather to discuss if automation really is the answer to all operational issues in the terminal, as well as assessing the risks and crucially the lessons learned from other projects.

Cargo owners continue to demand more from ports and terminals who are in turn trying to achieve a seamless experience across the terminal in order to improve productivity. Last year saw the region’s first fully automated terminal commence operations in Qingdao New Qianwan Container Terminal, where it handled its first containership of 13,386TEU.

Many new automation projects are in development across Asia and the Middle East, however keeping high-tech, autonomous and unmanned equipment in operation poses new and difficult challenges for ports and terminals. 

Among the discussions in the Automation session will be

Case study of VICT with Kalmar and Victoria International Container Terminal

Best practices for implementing a successful automated terminal with Navis

Impact of Digitalization on automated terminal build up and CT operations with Siemens

Gate automation without kiosks with smart-Tecs

Opex saving with hybrid RTGs with Conductix-Wampfler

Successfully automating your terminal with Hyundai
