Kalmar has announced it will organise its first hackathon at its Technology Competence Centre in Tampere, Finland.

CargoHack will take place from 8-10 April 2016, it will be organised in collaboration with Tieto Corporation and supported by its hackathon concept CXHack.

"The participating teams will be asked to help us "digitalise the terminal". We've devised a number of tasks to this end, covering areas like visualisation of terminal operations, use of mobile technologies, safety, and improving efficiency of the wider value chain around cargo handling," said Tommi Pettersson, vice president of automation at Kalmar.

Teams and individuals may submit their applications for attending the event online at the CargoHack website.

Soili Mäkinen, CIO at Cargotec, said: "Cargotec is on a drive to become a world leader in intelligent cargo handling, increasing our focus on software, services and digital innovation.”

He concluded: “Now, as the next step in implementing our strategy, we're about to open the doors of our Technology and Competence Centre and have our first-ever hackathon. We are expecting to see a lot of interest both locally and globally."
