Container Port 4.0TM

We envision in the 4th industrial age, an intelligent container port enabled by smart real-time connectivity and embedded within the larger supply chain, driving synchronised coordination among all stakeholders. Container Port 4.0TM (CP4.0TM) is PSA’s technology blueprint and vision for our Container Port of the Future.

We invite you to co-create this future container port with PSA unboXed.

Connected Community

  • Collaborative workflow and streamlined digital documentation for vessel stowage planning, freight arrangement, trade financing and compliance, and supply chain execution to reduce iterative processes.
  • Real-time end-to-end freight and supply chain visibility, secured by access control and cybersecurity, to all stakeholders instead of relayed dissemination down the chain, enabling flexible and dynamic scheduling.
  • Crowd-sourcing and asset-sharing business solutions to improve asset utilisation and service scalability.
  • Use of Big Data, Analytics and Artificial Intelligence for predictive and seamless supply chain events, synchronizing freight movement in a way that reduces inventory costs.
  • Marketplaces to expand procurement options for supply chain services.
  • Integration within port communities of the various activities and transactions among actors such as authorities, customs, pilots, tugs, shipping agents and service providers to achieve better coordination.

  • Smart inventory management solutions for spares and parts including innovative storage, warehouse AGVs, supply solutions and 3D printing.
  • Remote, virtual, augmented reality or telepresence applications in areas such as training, supervisor-assisted maintenance and operations management.

Orchestrated Operations

  • Internet of Things (IoT) solutions for machine learning enabled, data driven optimisation.
  • Coordinated execution of land and ship-side operations to facilitate intermodal cargo flow and connections upon vessel’s arrival and berthing to gate-out and vice versa.
  • Harnessing big data for the synchronization of hinterland cargo movement.
  • Integrated multi-channel communications.
  • Data analytics that lead to actionable business and operational outcomes.
