50% of port professionals believe that less than 25% of global container ports will be semi or fully automated by 2025, Port Strategy’s (PS) first Twitter poll on automation shows.

22% believe 75% will be automated by that year and 28% believe 50% will be, showed the poll ahead of TOC Europe next week.

56% believe the next large scale, global cyber-attack on ports will take place within two years, 22% by the end of the year and 22% not in the near future.

83% believe port and terminal consolidation to counter alliance consolidation will increase over the next two years, while 8% said it will decrease and 9% said it will stay the same.

88% believe ports and terminals are behind the curve when it comes to the take up of digitalisation, with just 12% stating this not to be the case.

Artificial intelligence is already mature enough to be useful to the ports sector say 63%, while 25% said it will be mature enough in two years’ time and 13% saying in five years’ time.

This year, delegates can get the latest conference news from the dedicated TOC Europe page on PS’ website, delivered straight from the PS team.
