Navis has announced that it will launch its first summit focused on exploring the evolution of terminal automation technology in London before it headlines Port Technology’s Container Terminal Automation Conference (CTAC).
The 2018 Automation Summit will be held on March 13, 2018, in London, with the terminal operating system provider furthering its conversation around terminal automation by headlining CTAC on March 14-15 in London.
Automation has become a top priority for the ocean shipping industry, and the technology that is currently available or under development is having a widespread impact on day-to-day operations.
However, not all ports and terminals are taking advantage of the new technology and equipment at the same pace, with many struggling to achieve the true potential that automation holds.
At the Navis summit, several leading operators from automated and semi-automated ports and terminals will join experts from Navis to discuss the current state terminal automation and how operators can capitalize on the next wave of innovation.
The Navis summit aims to help customers across varying degrees of automation — from those in the initial exploration phase to those that have implemented full-scale automation — to better understand the next wave of automation and how Navis’ cutting edge terminal operating system can improve ROI.
At Port Technology’s annual event, executives at Navis will help attendees gain a better understanding of the future of AI and automation, how to deliver value through automation, the power of digitalization, as well as information sharing and connecting planning processes across an intelligent supply chain.
Navis executives will offer their insights on the industry at several sessions, including: ‘Future of AI & Automation’: a discussion about what AI is and how it will impact automation; 'Delivering Value Through Automation': a discussion among state-of-the-art automated terminals and vendors; and 'Intelligent Supply Chains': a look into different digitalization strategies across related industries.
Several sessions will delve into the specific applications of AI and automation at ports and terminals.
PTI has opened up entries for questions so that those who are unable to attend CTAC can send their questions in for the event.
