Delivering Improved Efficiency in the Movement of Shipping Containers
Evie Port Pod™ Transforming Shipping Container Operations
Evie Autonomous shipping container handlers can operate with precision and speed, resulting in faster and more streamlined container handling processes. They can optimise routes, minimise idle time, and perform tasks without delays caused by human limitations. Evie Port Pods™ can work around the clock, without being limited by human shift schedules. This enables higher productivity and faster turnaround times for container loading, unloading, and transportation.
Handlers can navigate through a port or warehouse with advanced sensors and collision avoidance systems, autonomous container handlers eliminate the need for manual labour, reducing labour costs and associated expenses such as training, employee benefits, and supervision.
With advanced algorithms and sensors, autonomous container handlers can precisely position and stack containers, minimising errors and optimising space utilisation which leads to improved container density and increased efficiency in container yards or storage facilities.
Autonomous technology is increasingly being used to improve port side operations. This technology can help to increase efficiency, reduce costs, and improve safety. Some of the most common applications of autonomous technology in ports include autonomous guided vehicles (AGVs), autonomous cranes, autonomous drones, and autonomous software. AGVs are used to transport cargo and materials within ports. They can operate 24/7 and are not susceptible to fatigue or distraction. Autonomous cranes are used to load and unload cargo from ships. They can operate more precisely and safely than human-operated cranes. Autonomous drones are used to inspect ships and cargo for damage. They can access hard-to-reach areas and provide real-time footage of inspections. Autonomous software is used to optimise port operations. This software can help to schedule ships, allocate resources, and track cargo.
The use of autonomous technology in ports offers a number of benefits. These include increased efficiency, reduced costs, improved safety, environmental benefits, improved capacity, reduced environmental impact, and increased flexibility. As the technology continues to mature, we can expect to see even more widespread adoption of autonomous technologies in ports. This will help to make port operations safer, more efficient, more environmentally friendly, and more flexible.
Evie Port Pods™ can gather and analyse data during operations, providing valuable insights for process optimisation. This data-driven approach enables better decision-making, resource allocation, and overall performance improvement.
Evie Port Pods™ can be programmed to handle various container types and sizes, adapting to changing operational needs. They offer flexibility in accommodating different container configurations and can be integrated into existing logistics systems.
