We have recently launched a new survey which aims to assess the digital maturity of global ports. The Terminal Automation Audit is intended to determine how ‘future ready’ international facilities are, by examining how advanced the use of ‘smart’ technology and data is across the industry.
The results of the survey will set the benchmark for a new industry assessment tool and feed into a report on the state of play in the industry now, with predictions for the future.
The Terminal Automation Audit takes the form of two surveys: one for terminal and port stakeholders, and a second for ship owners, builders and shipping lines.
From terminal and port owners and operators, we want to understand the current uptake of automated technologies, ongoing optimization, data use and future planning.
From shipping stakeholders, we’re keen to learn how much importance is placed on digital technologies at marine facilities, and how much automation plays a role on board.
