Over the past ten years, most vessels have doubled in capacity and are continuing to grow. The increasing number of big vessels has significantly increased the amount of cargo arriving at the same time in ports, also, larger ships take more time to offload, and this means more berth time for ships and wait time for trucks, ultimately leading to increased congestion.

Effective port management involves monitoring an array of disparate activities including the movement of ships, containers, and other cargo. On top of daily functions, the safety of both truck drivers and port workers is of utmost importance. To optimize shipment turn-round time results in not only the optimization of the port itself but also in-reduced costs per unit of cargo handled, which is made possible with SMATS technologies.
