Digital Twin applications in port and inland waterway transport domains

Friday, March 31st, 2023

Why this webinar

The Digital Twin group has been set up to create a community for promoting and exchanging experiences on digital twins in logistics. This is to encourage a proactive culture of logistics process management, organize events to showcase model projects, and promote collaboration and adoption of the Physical Internet through virtual models and digital twins.

During this webinar, our focus will be on case studies related to ports and inland water transportation. We will showcase various use cases that demonstrate the practical applications of virtual models in different navigation environments. Furthermore, our discussions will encompass an analysis of the benefits, disadvantages, and potential barriers associated with these digital models. Our goal is to provide participants with valuable insights into the logistics digital transformation through the effective use of digital twin models.
