PANEL IDEA

4.0 - New technologies in Polish maritime ports

The leading topic of this year’s Maritime Ports panel will be the following slogan: “4.0 New technologies in Polish maritime ports”. The main matters that the guests of this year’s Maritime ports panel will deal with are going to be matters connected with fast technological development in maritime industry.

Contemporary ships are bigger and bigger, and taking into account constant or decreasing number of their teams that deal with loading and unloading, we need more consistent data and participants in processes which process information and implement smart technologies.

We want to devote less time, money and human work to transshipment in terminals, which requires making use of innovative ICT technologies (blockchain, Big Data etc.) and further automation of transshipment devices.

New, smart technologies in ports and at their contact point with land and sea will contribute to the acceleration of transshipment, decrease in their costs and improvement of the logistics handling of cargo.

 

In this context, out guests will answer e.g. the following questions:

  • Measures taken by Polish ports to implement innovative technologies?
  • How are they going to ensure service provision to demanding shipowners?
  • Methods of strengthening the competitive advantage of Polish ports with respect to ports in the North Sea and the Baltic Sea in the context of new technologies?
