PTI’s Mega-Ports and Mega-Terminals Edition 75 Is Here

 05 Oct 2017 10.28am

Sharing the wisdom of some of the giants of the industry, PTI has released its new issue on 'Mega-Ports & Mega-Terminals', in which mega-ports reveal strategies they use to handle vessels that are larger than ever before.

This 75th edition of the journal looks at the rapid expansion and digitization of ports to enable handling of mega-ships.

Innovative systems for integrating operations between ports, shipping companies, and logistics providers are among the methods the industry uses to tackle mega-ships.

Major ports are also undertaking crane extension upgrades, expanding automation innovations and experimenting with automated mooring.

Contributors to the issue include Shanghai International Port Group (SIPG), the operator of the world’s busiest port, Busan Port Authority, the operator of the growing hub port of Busan, and the COO at Long Beach Container Terminal (LBCT), one the newest and most high-tech terminals in the US.

Qingdao New Qianwan Container Terminal (QQCTN) in its paper provides a fascinating tour of the facilities of the first fully automated terminal in Asia, where containers zip around in the dark at night.
