Business Finland and the Maritime Cluster Northern Germany welcomes you to a Finnish-German port technology webinar on 26 January 2022.
The event will highlight how digital solutions are a driver for innovation and enabler for efficiency in port logistics.
Over 90 percent of the intercontinental exchange of goods takes place by sea. Ports ensure an important part of the basic supply for the population and the industry. Automation and digital networking of vehicles and infrastructure on road, rail, waterways and air traffic will form the basis for global logistics chains.
This also includes improving port logistics and developing innovative seaport technologies in order, among other things, to make ports more competitive, to increase the handling performance of the port terminals and to improve the digital infrastructure and port technologies for environmental and climate protection.
The webinar is targeted for Finnish and German digital and maritime companies, ports, terminal operators, authorities and research organizations interested in learning more about the current applied technologies in both countries. We will present innovative examples of digital technologies already implemented in port operations in both countries.
