ICT solutions oriented monitoring and positioning of containers and ro-ro. Container logistics using modern ICT technologies

The INTE-TRANSIT project, co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund under the MED Programme framework, aims to a better logistics organization of MED ports and logistics areas through the use of modern ICT technologies and to establish a framework for cooperation between stakeholders in the Mediterranean countries for the exchange of best practices, cooperation and personnel training.

Among the foreseen activities in INTE-TRANSIT a training framework for ports and their associated logistics areas is included. The first of the five (5) planned training activities will take place in Seville at 6-7 November2013, organised by IAT. Other training activities will be organized during 2014 and 2015 in Naples, Algeciras, Valencia and Athens.


This first training session is aiming to a wide audience including management and administrative staff of ports, general professionals of port authorities and/or logistics activity areas bounded to maritime ports as well as logistics companies.

The training will address among other things the following:

  • Container-driven developments in modern shipping and port operations & logistics. How ICT solutions are implemented and lessons learned.
  • Description of port operations and challenges resulting from thick stacking and automated procedures
  • Containers and yard equipment monitoring and positioning.
  • Information and management systems for port & logistics operations and how they are addressing the issue of system integration.
  • Modelling and simulation techniques and how they can improve efficiency; description of the VSM methodology

The trainers are experts coming from experienced and well-known companies and organisations including SEAbility Ltd., the Institute of Communication and Computer Systems (ICCS), the Piraeus Container Terminal SA (PCT) and the Andalusian Institute of Technology (IAT).

Since INTE-TRANSIT is a project aiming at significant technological and innovative developments, the related training sessions will have a twofold interest: they will present both innovative and future solutions but also practical examples and best cases from existing applications. In addition to the presentations and to the discussions to be organised, trainees will have the opportunity to explore different technologies, in the framework of a virtual technology lab that will include demos presented by well known suppliers.
