Anyone that reads this blog will have noticed the focus we’ve given to terminal automation over the past few months, especially the principles and practicalities of better supply chain collaboration, and how automated technologies can facilitate and improve it.

Organized by Port Technology, The Terminal Automation and Training C-Level Networking Conference brings together thought leaders in the automation and training sectors of the port industry. Therefore, it is the perfect place to discuss the stages of terminal automation, implications on port staff training and the need for simulation to facilitate this.

We see the conference as a key event in the marine calendar, and we’ve supported it since its inception in 2016. At last year’s conference we caught up with delegates to find out how the maritime sector is implementing automation and smart technologies, as well as the challenges facing ports and terminals as they transition to such technologies.

To get you in the mood for this year’s conference, watch the videos and hear expertise from key thought leaders on smart technology and the supply chain, the need for open communication, and effective transition strategies.
