Gantry Crane/Reach Stacker Solution
As the increase of global ports across the world is causing bottlenecks in the global supply chain, coupled with the recovery of post-pandemic, this presents an opportunity to envision the future of smart ports. With the feature-rich vehicle mount computer solutions from Darveen, the realization of a high-performance smart port is within reach.
The Rise of Smart Ports
A smart port can provide relevant technologies to terminal operation companies to solve the internal and external challenges of the organization and to facilitate the efficient movement of goods, delivery of services and smooth flow of information. By utilizing modern technologies such as 5G, Big Data, and IoT, this can interconnect cranes, containers, trucks, and operation centers, ensuring seamless coordination of all port operations and achieving optimal efficiency.
Shanghai’s Yangshan Deep Water Port uses a 5G network to create the world’s largest automated container terminal. This encompasses the automation of cranes, trucks, and vehicles. The port is also committed to creating green and high-tech terminals. The Port of Le Havre HAROPA in France leverages intelligent data and tools to help smart port operations, aiming to develop a new model of urban and industrial port territory integrated through technology innovation. Similarly, the Copenhagen Malmö Port focuses on reducing “noise pollution, emissions, waste, energy consumption and climate adaption”, emphasizing a port and city in harmony. In conclusion, smart ports enhance terminal operations for greater efficiency and contribute to a more sustainable port environment.
Substantial computing power is essential for handling vast volumes of data generated by numerous devices and crane vehicles in daily terminal operations. From gantry cranes, quay cranes to yard cranes, reach stackers, and forklift trucks, the demand for reliable and sophisticated vehicle mount computer systems is on the rise. These applications include job assignment, real-time monitoring, navigation, data logging, and reporting. The collected data, such as cargo handling volume, transportation time, work duration, etc., serves as analytical reports for management, to strengthen production processes and align with the global trend towards smart ports.
