Portwise launches Automation Consulting business line

Portwise has announced the launch of its Automation Consulting business line, which aims to help terminal operators transform design concepts into fully operational and efficient automated terminals.

Portwise’s new business line aims to address the needs of port operators worldwide in making critical decisions about automation implementation, selecting appropriate technologies, organising the automation project and establishing the necessary operational structures post-automation, to reduce project risks, avoid project delays, and budget overruns.

The company stated that it is ready to assist port operators in taking their automation initiatives to new heights while also strengthening its capacity to deliver end-to-end services.

Kaj de Groot, Director of Automation Projects at Portwise, said: “We see that technology suppliers often focus on the technical feasibility. The critical part is making it work together as a whole.

“With our Automation Consulting business line, we focus on automation projects where systems, people and equipment get equally as much attention, as we believe that’s fundamental to ensure high performing terminal operations.”

Portwise’s terminal automation technique reportedly includes a methodical approach to identifying all important factors for automating an existing (brownfield) or new (greenfield) container terminal.

Recently, Dom Magli, Staff Reporter at Port Technology International, sat down for an interview with Yvo Saanen, Managing Director of Portwise. The conversation centred around global logistics, automation, and technological developments at terminals.
