  • Indian ports are witnessing technology adoption at a never seen before pace. Ports are making substantial investments in smart digital solutions. The non-major ports have started deploying more sophisticated technologies to not only increase their efficiency levels but also to outperform the major ports.
  • A digital transformation roadmap for select Indian ports has been created to improve efficiency and increase productivity. Over 50 digital and technology modules have been identified across cargo and vessel operations, among others. A number of ports have also implemented solutions such as enterprise business systems (EBS) to modernise and automate port processes, gate automation and RFID gates to reduce human intervention, geographic information systems, and automated container yard positioning.
  • Ports are now looking at advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence, blockchain and IoT, and the use of drones for seamless operations. Video analytics is an emerging technology being considered for container operations. Robotics is being used for gate automation. Real-time tracking of containers has been made possible with IoT, while the introduction of sensor systems will facilitate a reduction in the wait time.
  • The Covid-19 outbreak has certainly increased the adoption of technology-based solutions at ports. One of the biggest technological initiatives taken amidst the ongoing pandemic is the digital issuance and approval of documents. Customs authorities too have been quick to adapt to the changed requirements.
  • Going forward, the opportunity in the digital transformation space is enormous. Sagarmala too has port modernisation as one of its core components. This makes it imperative to deploy technology-based solutions and modern equipment at ports to increase their efficiency levels.
  • The mission of this virtual conference is to highlight the progress so far with regard to the digital transformation of Indian ports, discuss the experience and challenges with technology adoption, and identify the future needs and requirements. It will also showcase the latest innovations, and the most promising and relevant technologies for Indian ports.
