In 2020, the Port of Rotterdam moved 436.8 million tonnes of cargo through its 42 kilometres waterway in the Netherlands. To make it a ‘smart port’, the port authority is working with Awake.AI for digital twin.
Once completed, decisions will be based on data, less emission, less use of space, less time, and fewer people. When Ever Given was refloated from Suez Canal almost after a week, the Port of Rotterdam Authority has initiated proactive consultation with the relevant stakeholders (shipping companies, terminal operators, inland terminals, hinterland carriers) to determine how to handle the forecast surge in incoming vessels as smoothly as possible. Solutions such as Awake.AI’s Smart Port as a Service could solve many communication and collaboration problems.
