PTI Advent 2018: Season’s Greetings From ABB
Pioneering technology specialists ABB have released a video wishing season’s greetings.
ABB’s innovation and technological expertise are a vital component in enabling trade around the world, as has been demonstrated this year.
In March 2018, in an interview with Port Technology International, Senior Vice-President of ABB’s Ports Unit, Uno Bryfors predicted that 2018 would be the year of “mega” containers and alliances, and that big investment would be needed throughout the supply chain to meet demand.
Following on from that, in the same month, ABB demonstrated the first remotely operated super quay cranes with a 360-degree video tour of the Maasvlaktell II container terminal in The Netherlands.
