On October 3, IBA Group participated in a specialized workshop Containerization and Multimodal Transportation that was a part of the Transport & Logistics 2018 exhibition. Organized within the Belarusian Transport Week, the event took place from October 2 to October 4 in Minsk, Belarus.
At the workshop, IBA Group spoke about management of loading and unloading in a presentation entitled Digital Twin of a Container Terminal. The company presented a prototype of a container terminal management system. The presentation explained what a digital twin is and how the technology works.
The digital twin of a container terminal is designed for organizing and managing the loading and unloading operations at the container sites of logistics centers and port terminals. The system features real time management of a terminal model, taking into account all containers assigned to customers. Using algorithms to optimize the loading of the terminal and the use of lifting mechanisms, the systems allows for increasing the efficiency of management and operation, as well as for reducing the time of loading and unloading.
