PortMiami Crane Management, Inc., (PMCM) has appointed PACECO MOMENTUM to install the digitalisation tool PACECO SPYDER on three additional Ship-to-Shore (STS) cranes.
In the future, installation will be implemented on a further two for a total of 11 transformed cranes.
The system had been installed on six STS cranes back in 2020.
PortMiami reported an increase in data awareness and a tangible improvement in data scope and quality as a result of beginning a terminal digitalisation.
According to the World Bank and S&P Global Market Intelligence Container Port Performance Index 2021, PMCM came out as the second most efficient port in North America and the most efficient in Florida.
PMCM is now working to bolster digitalisation and digitisation processes within the port environment.
The port said it will achieve a complete digital transformation through process automation and the latest Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology – creating an Artificial Neural Network (ANN) thanks to 5G connection.
The grant comes as part of the department’s NetZero: Cargo Mobility Optimization and Resiliency Project.
