Mawan Smart Port project, the leading project on smart port development by China Merchants Port (CMP), has entered into test operations.

CMP said it is expected to become a model for the smart upgrading of traditional docks at home and abroad.

The port project integrates nine smart elements include China Merchants Core (CMCore), China Merchants ePort (CM ePort), artificial intelligence, 5G application, BeiDou Navigation Satellite System (BDS), automation, smart customs, blockchain, as well as green and low-carbon operation.

It is the first automated port upgraded from a traditional dock in China. CMCore, as its core technology, is a major operating system independently developed and built by CMPort, and other technologies with China's own intellectual property rights, as well as customized equipment manufactured nationwide.

The upgraded Mawan Port is not only a smart intelligent port but also a testing site for the overlapping of old and new ports, and further an incubator of smart port technologies and models .In the future, Mawan Smart Port will become the global smart center of CMPort.

Mawan Smart Port also teams up with domestic leading internet industry players such as Huawei, Tencent, Alibaba and others to create a smart ecosystem centered on port.

Smart port development is of key importance for CMPort to "lead by science and technology, embrace change", to continuously improve the core competitiveness of ports, and realise the transformation and upgrading of traditional ports, said CMP.
