The port, the port operations and their digital twin


Digital twins have shown to be an effective tools for optimizing manufacturing processes without wasting time and resources. The concept has also sailed into the ports. The digital twin can help to optimize operations and decision-making by providing real-time data and insights into the port's infrastructure, cargo flow, and other relevant variables.

However, there are some challenges: limited availability of data, cost of implementation, data security and privacy and of course the integration of the digital twin into the existing systems and workflows of the ports. In this webinar different digital twins of ports and port operations will be presented with the possibilities to discuss the implementation, the challenges it had and the wins it created.
