The ports of Europe have always been hubs for some of the largest volumes of cargo and the greatest range of transit options – connecting economies and societies around the world. Today, digitalized ports are at the forefront, securely connected to land and sea, making freight and passenger transportation more profitable thanks to automation and big data usage. So let's continue the success of the European maritime sector  and prepare our ports and industries for the demands of the future with smart, swift and secure port digitalization solutions.

Steering a port into the digital future requires advanced services that will not only automate logistics, but also guide port management and traffic, shipping, and passenger management into safe waters. After all, the higher the degree of port connectivity, speed and security, the more attractive, productive and profitable it is for all its stakeholders – and ultimately the more competitive it is on its path towards the future. In Europe, T Business based providers are leading partners in the maritime industry, for instance in satellite communications (satcom for short), and support the industry with a broad portfolio for port digitalization. It includes everything from data platform port systems and network solutions for ports to connectivity and IT security services for reliable maritime communication via internet, e-mail, and voice both onshore and offshore.

Smart and scalable data platform for ports

The digitalization of ports is a key factor for future success when it comes to paving the way for a region's economy. That’s why we provide a data platform for ports, which connects them to facilitate collaboration and allows improved management of loads and cargo, as well as minimizing transportation and waiting times on central port roads. Furthermore, when used in conjunction with reliable port connectivity solutions, it enables better movement of traffic and shorter turn-around times for vehicles in the port, which in turn results in reduced emissions of airborne pollutants. Ultimately, it is beneficial in improving the mobility of passengers, professionals and visitors at the port – aiming to combine the availability of people and mobility data with port-related services, thereby improving the quality of services offered to the benefit of all those involved.

  • Supporting and assisting the port authority with proactive and reactive measures relating to the operation of the gate control system, for example
  • Seamless data flow to improve port management and thereby the supply chain, including increased transparency for stakeholders
  • Passengers, professionals, and visitors of ThPA receive relevant mobility information as a service (e.g. analytics) to facilitate their interactions with the port
  • Taking port traffic into consideration, our platform and port digitalization solution helps to coordinate and improve the services provided by shipping companies and the greater local community
  • Finally, it reduces the environmental impact of lorry traffic
