Tianjin port, China Mobile Tianjin branch and China Mobile (Shanghai) Information and Communication Technology signed a cooperation agreement to jointly develop 5G applications for ports.

The three parties have inked the 5G and Beidou Smart Port Joint Laboratory cooperation agreement to establish a closer partnership for promoting 5G and Beidou technology’s applications in the port sector, and developing Tianjin to be a world-class port.

The integration of 5G technology and Beidou's Navigation Satellite system—China's answer to GPS—has the potential to greatly increase efficiency in the port sector as it enables the sending and receiving of accurate, real-time location data alongside other information from sensors.

According to the agreement, the three parties will deepen cooperation on digitalization and automation of ports, promote innovative resource integration, and develop the 5G and Beidou Smart Port Joint Lab to be a research & development center and an advanced technology base.

In January this year, Tianjin port deployed Beidou in its container terminal, improving container handling efficiency rates by 20%.
