As global trade increases at an exponential rate, ports are in turn thriving. However, some aspects of ports are stuck in the past, with most container ports still operating gigantic container yards manually.

For port container operators, finding the right container is like finding a needle in a haystack – especially in today’s ports, which can move around 11,000 cargo containers daily. But as the demand for goods rises, so too does the demand to move a greater volume of containers faster and more efficiently.

To counteract this need, more and more Internet of Things (IoT) sensors, systems, and technologies are being implemented to interconnect people, equipment, infrastructure, vehicles, and other critical assets. In particular, port officials are evaluating and looking to implement mobile communication technologies to help them improve productivity and reduce operational costs.
