Port Innovation Conference at HPC’s a full success
HPC and SAP successfully hosted their jointly-organised Port Innovation Conference held at HPC’s premises at Hamburg’s Container Terminal Altenwerder on 16th and 17th October 2018.
Among the invited guests were operations and IT managers as well as CEOs of international ports and terminals. Some 30 representatives followed the invitation, i.a. from the Middle East, Africa, different European countries and from German ports.
HPC as one of the leading consultants in global port, transport and logistics industry and SAP as internationally renowned industry software supplier provided the participants of the conference with valuable information on digitalisation and integration along the supply chain as the two decisive trends driving innovation in logistics. Together, we offered our guests insights on best practice projects and state-of-the-art software solutions for port and terminal management. In various conference sessions, we focussed on current trends in port and terminal operations, optimization potential, process simulations, operating systems or asset management. The program also included a tour around CTA as one of the world’s most automated terminals.
The participants’ feedback after both days was completely positive. Intensive discussions took place and many questions were asked during the various sessions and one-to-one meetings with HPC and SAP experts. "This strong exchange of experience is exactly what we wanted to achieve. It is inimitably valuable for everyone involved”, says Dr. Alexis Pangalos of HPC, in charge of organizing the conference. "We definitely consider a follow-up event, whether in Hamburg or at a different location."
