Whether planning the next phase of expansion of an existing container terminal to meet growing trade demands, or upgrading existing terminal operations with sustainable and more cost effective container handling equipment, staying current with innovative technologies is paramount to ensure the future success of the supply chain. This presentation will discuss emerging technologies either being considered or already in operation at Canadian marine terminals with a focus on case studies along the west coast. These technologies will include: electric vehicles, autonomous equipment, smart yard systems, blockchain technology, shore power and logistic centres. Electric vehicles and autonomous technology is not only being used on public roads, the conversion has already started at Canadian container terminals with an emphasis on reducing air emissions, enhancing safety, and saving costs. Electric hybrid container handling vehicles have been implemented at west coast container terminals with significant benefits reported through test pilot programs. Key benefits include: GHG emission reductions, fuel cost savings, community noise reduction, maintenance downtime reduction and yard efficiency optimization. The Boxbay smart system offers multiple benefits to container yard operations, including 33% less yard area and direct container accessibility. This is a significant benefit when considering logistic centres and marine terminal developments in an urban area with industrial land shortages. With solar power capability, the system also offers renewable energy opportunities, which aligns with resilient infrastructure mandates by the government and further reduces the carbon footprint of the facility. Blockchain technology is evolving rapidly, changing the shipping world with significant increases in trade volume and ultimately global GDP benefits. Through a digitized filing system (paperless), customers have full visibility at each step along a shipment path through an open platform in which a shared ledger tracks transactions and assets. Shore power has emerged as an effective means of reducing GHG emissions and terminal noise by replacing diesel powered auxiliary engines with electrical power supplied by on-site terminal facilities. The Port of Vancouver as one example has reported anticipated reductions in GHG emissions in the range of 95 tonnes per vessel call and fuel savings in the range of 30 tonnes per call. A key trend in the container market has been to further optimize the supply chain through the development of strategically located logistic centres, which can utilize automated equipment to enhance efficiency, increase throughput capacity, and ultimately help balance imports and exports for nearby container terminals.
