Port terminal operations
Simplifying digital transformation
Optimize terminal productivity safely and sustainably
Port terminal operators are under growing pressure to increase productivity as the volume of shipping trade increases. At the same time, they also need to ensure the safety of their workers in highly congested yards and meet ambitious sustainability goals to reduce the environmental impact of their operations. Nokia’s port terminal solutions provide operators with an integrated digital automation platform that can help them optimize terminal productivity safely and sustainably — and prepare them to compete in the new digital age of transportation and logistics.

Realize the potential of Port 4.0
Enable port terminal automation
Industry 4.0 technologies can power your automated and remote-control operations. Manage growing container volumes, optimize end-to-end workflows and accurately track terminal assets (and their condition) in real-time. Get the performance and low latency you need for Port 4.0 use cases such as incident detection with video analytics, machine automation of cargo handling equipment such as RTGs and straddle carriers, container ID recognition, drone inspections and more.
Be more productive, safe and sustainable
Our innovative smart port solutions integrate connectivity, IoT, edge computing and machine learning technologies. They include digital applications such as digital twins, workflow and video analytics, smart traffic management, drone inspections in dangerous or hard-to-reach areas, and sensors for worker and environmental monitoring to create terminals that are more productive, safe and sustainable.
Improve operational efficiency and collaboration
Streamline your cargo shipping operations with secure, reliable data communications. Move on from private mobile radio (PMR) and equip your staff with advanced push-to-talk (PTT), push-to-video (PTV), group calling and other dynamic communication capabilities. By replacing a patchwork of networks with one platform that supports all communications, terminal operators can reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) by up to 27 percent while increasing operational efficiency and productivity by up to 11 percent.*

Enhance ship-to-shore communications
Keep ships connected and support data-driven use cases with fast, secure wireless communications. Our solutions provide high-range antennas that connect ships with mobile networks on shore. We also provide capabilities that enable ships to benefit from bandwidth aggregation and higher levels of quality of service (QoS) and security.
The business case for port digitalization
Digitalization technologies can help optimize all aspects of a port terminal’s operations: from improved automation and increased productivity to greater situational awareness and a safer work environment. But there is no “one size fits all” approach to determining the real-world impacts these technologies can have on your operations. An effective analysis requires a deep dive into multiple factors that affect operational efficiency. Nokia offers a comprehensive, customized tool to help you analyze and quantify the benefits of digitalization for your port terminal. Find out more
Embrace Industry 4.0 operations
Industry 4.0 operations that fuse physical and digital processes require a reliable communications platform — one that can connect everything from vehicles and sensors to mobile workers in the most flexible, affordable and secure way.
By digitalizing your operations, you can easily transform data into insights to become more agile and proactive. Adopt remote and autonomous technologies, powered by advanced intelligence, to enable highly collaborative, hybrid work environments and real-time responses.
Our professional services team can help address your operational needs and simplify your Port 4.0 transformation with:
- A mission-critical private 4.9G/LTE or 5G wireless network that can help digitalize your operational technology (OT) systems to make them more agile and resilient
- A complimentary Wi-Fi layer that can provide reliable connectivity for IT systems and non-business-critical OT use cases
- An industrial edge that can unify OT use cases and enable you to securely process your data within your terminal operations
- Industrial devices that can enhance connectivity and help improve worker communication, productivity and safety
- Industrial applications that can cut through complexity and help accelerate your digital transformation.
