Terminal Automation: Beyond the Trend

Let’s talk about an Industry with doubts. Over the past few years, automation in this industry has been often treated as a “trend”.

Something that could pass over time, something that is somehow optional. However, the evolution of almost all other industries in the last decades proves that this is not just an optional feature.

We cannot consider automation just a possibility when designing a new terminal or when we need to improve performance on existing ones. Introducing automation is not a trend, it is just the way our world operates at every level today and our Industry is a key part of the world we live in.
