The impact of digitization in container terminals – Presented by Jordi Arjona Aroca, Valenciaport Foundation, at Cargo Innovation Conference which will take place on Jun 07, 2018, at Maaspoort, Venlo, The Netherlands.

During the last years ports, terminals and haulers have been walking at a steady pace towards full digitization. This has open a new range of possibilities to them and many are embracing the latest advances in fields like big data, IOT or cyber-physical systems, which are paving their way towards full automation. We will present the efforts Valenciaport Foundation is making in this regard, jointly with the collaboration of Valenciaport authority and terminal operators like Noatum. In particular we will introduce four European projects, SeaTerminals, INTER-IoT, Transforming Transport and Sauron, in four different areas: Cyberphysical systems, Internet of Things, BigData and Cybersecurity.

Development from intermodal to synchromodal transport. Is your company ready? – Presented by Guy Somers, Fontys University of Applied Sciences, at the Cargo Innovation Conference, which will take place on Jun 07, 2018, at Maaspoort, Venlo, The Netherlands.

Based on a research of Fontys University of applied sciences and Rotterdam University of applied sciences a maturity model has been made to classify companies in different levels of maturity, whereby companies also receive advice on various aspects in order to grow continuously. Offering intermodal and synchromodal transport is step one, acceptance and implementation is step two. Are customers ready for it? Do they accept synchromodal transport? And if they accept these modes of transport, how much are they willing to pay for it?
