Friday Focus: Tour Ports With VR?

  20 Jan 2017

Is virtual reality (VR) the future of workplace training and fitness? PTI believes so.

The New Era of Container Shipping

In the new era we see, vendors of solutions will date to venture out their niches and look for solutions that connect and interchange information in real time to provide actionable visibility and enable efficient decision making. These solutions will be possible because new standards for information exchange and a set of common semantics have evolved.

Leveraging Virtual Reality

The perception of automation is that robots relieve human beings from repetitive tasks and that process automation brings stability and predictable performance to a container terminal, thereby increasing safety. What we often fail to mention is that even with the implementation of automation, accidents will still occur and technology can still fail.

2016 Update: Ports of the Future

For the port of the future, bigger vessels, broader carrier alliances, container capacity consolidation and larger hub and spoke port networks will be changing costs and revolutionising the way in which profits are generated from operations. Simultaneously, the port of the future will manage increased investment along with demands for improved productivity and higher level of service

New Frontier: Big Data & the Impact on the Supply Chain

Modern business moves at the speed of light, and as part of that, access to timely and accurate data is critical. The ability to automate not only the collection of, but also, the analysis of the massive amounts of information processed on a daily basis, allows organisations to make business decisions based on facts, rather than antiquated processes or unreliable intuition and gut instincts. The pay-off of business intelligence (BI) and the optimised decision-making that Big Data can empower has real impact.
