The 4th Industrial Revolution in Ports – How the Terminal Industry is Setting the Standards

TOC Webinar Preview February.png

TOC Digital was proud on 24th February 2021 to be partnering with the Terminal Industry Committee 4.0 (TIC 4.0) association, to bring an audience in excess of 500 viewers a unique chance to be centre-stage of the discussions driving the formation of common industry standards that will be steering the container supply chain’s ‘4th Industrial Revolution.’

Ports & terminals have always been under the utmost scrutiny to deliver effective and efficient operations for customers and this continues to the present day against a backdrop of unprecedented industrial digitalization.

'Big Data’, the ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT), ‘Artificial Intelligence’ (AI), ‘Automation’, ‘Blockchain’ – with a plethora of technologies driving this revolution, and a multitude of different ways to interpret their implementation and effectiveness, it is now clear the sector needs to accelerate its work in developing accepted industry-wide standards to influence how the industry interacts with its surroundings – not only by improving performance and competitiveness but also by increasing safety of operations and reducing environmental impacts.

So, what standards does the Terminal Industry need to adopt to leverage this 4th Industrial Revolution for Ports?

Click here to view on-demand, and join Frank Kho, Chief Executive at TIC 4.0 who will be moderating this exclusive webinar, and a speaker line featuring leading terminal operators and key industry stakeholders including Pat O’Leary, Head of Technology at the Port Equipment Manufacturers Association (PEMA), Lamia Kerdjoudj-Belkaid, Secretary General at FEPORT, Boris Wenzel, Managing Director, Terminal Link, and Marcel van de Pol, Program Director at the Digital Container Shipping Association (DCSA), who will be collectively working on the elaboration of language standardisation in 2021.

This is your chance to discover the key outcomes of this crucial effort, ahead of the initiative's first publication later in 2021.  Topics that were discussed include:
•    An introduction to the work of the Terminal Industry Committee 4.0 (TIC 4.0)

•    Why it is crucial common industry standards are set as soon as possible, and what the challenges & opportunities will be
