  • Technology is a key focus area in the infrastructure sectors, and the port sector is no exception. The government has given a further push to port modernisation, mechanisation and digitalisation, with a number of ease of doing business initiatives implemented in the past year under the Sagarmala programme. In addition, greater investments have been made by ports in technology deployment.

  • The launch of the revamped port community system, "PCS1x" is expected to connect and provide real-time information to stakeholders on a single platform. Other key measures for port modernisation include the introduction of web-based e-forms and direct port delivery; the installation of container scanners and radio frequency identification (RFID)-based systems for gate automation; the digitalisation of land records; the automation of issuance of delivery orders; the launch of a single-window interface for facilitating trade; and the integration of more seaports with PCS. Steps are also being taken to create green and sustainable ports.

  • Going forward, technology is going to play a key role in shaping India's port sector. Around 260 projects involving an investment of Rs 1.4 trillion have been identified under the port modernisation component of the Sagarmala programme.

  • New technologies such as cloud computing, artificial intelligence, remote sensing and GIS, blockchain, augmented reality, internet of things (IoT), big data, robotics, simulation, drones and sensors are being explored for Indian ports.

  • However, issues such as shortage of trained and skilled manpower, a general reluctance towards technology adoption, strict labour laws, old and obsolete equipments and poor server need to be addressed to increase the uptake of technologies and solutions.

  • The mission of this conference is to highlight the modernisation, mechanisation and digitalisation requirements of Indian ports, discuss the opportunities and future potential, and identify the key issues and concerns. It will also showcase the latest innovations, and the most promising and relevant technologies for Indian ports.
