The Terminal Industry Committee 4.0 (TIC4.0) has welcomed two new members, Camco technologes and INFORM.
In a social media post the Committee provided a warm welcome and said it is looking forward to continuing its journey towards standardization of port terminal processes and the adoption of Industry 4.0 technologies.
The two companies join others members which include APM Terminals, Cargotec, Navis and Terminal Link.
The Terminal Industry Committee 4.0 (TIC 4.0) initiative aims to bring together representative companies from both the Terminal Operators industry and Port Equipment Manufacturers and Suppliers to collectively work on the elaboration of such standards.
The TIC 4.0 initiative has been endorsed by the Federation of European Private Port Companies and Terminals (FEPORT) and of the Port Equipment Manufacturers Association (PEMA).
After the publication of the TIC4.0 White Paper in March 2021, the Committee announced its second release of technical standards for the sector.
This first compendium (TIC4.0 2021.1) explains the context for the application of the Definitions, Semantics, Dataset Roadmap and Data Model defined by TIC4.0 as the main standardisation pillars for the port terminal industry. Moreover, this release presents the first 25 definitions which characterize the “Activity” and “Power Source” topics for Container Handling Equipment.
