Kalmar President: ‘Copy With Pride’ When Automating Ports
Kalmar’s President Antti Kaunonen has said that the port industry should be able to “copy with pride” when it comes to standardizing automation.
During the interview with Port Technology at TOC Europe 2017, Kaunonen said that the port and terminals industry would benefit from automation standards because it would mean that a new technologically-advanced facility could be replicated in other locations to benefit the sector as a whole.
Kaunonen said: “The only answer really is that we have to be able to copy with pride in this industry so we have proven solutions.”
The efficiencies that can be created for terminals through automation software has also been discussed by Navis' General Manager and Vice President EMEA Guenter Schmidmeir, who is a colleague of Kaunonen's under the Cargotec company umbrella.
