Circle SpA, (“Circle”), a company headed by the homonymous Group specialized in the analysis of processes and in the development of automation solutions and for the digitalisation of the port sectors and intermodal logistics, listed on the AIM Italia market, organized and managed by Borsa Italiana, announces its participation in the third edition of Baltic Ports and Shipping 2019, at Marriott Gdynia Waterfront.
The port of Gdynia is one of the main ports in the Baltic Sea region, specialized in handling general goods, including containers, Ro-Ro, ferries and bulk cargoes. Baltic Ports and Shipping, organized by the Port Authorities of Gdansk and Gdynia, is the most important annual forum on logistics and shipping in the Baltic region. The two-day event in Gdynia includes 35 speakers from all over the world who will tackle all the issues related to the entire supply chain industry of today. Innovation, technological solutions, infrastructural changes linked to climate change are just some of the aspects which will be analyzed during the event, which will also see the participation of over 300 government officials, advisors from the private sector, stakeholders and shipping companies.
Circle participates in the new edition of the event through the Booth No. 11, “Log @ Sea”, the strategic partnership that links Circle to the partners IB and Aitek, which together work to enhance their respective experiences in the field of maritime services, systems intermodal traffic and automation management. Circle will also be present at Baltic Ports and Shipping with the speech entitled “Digitalisation and Optimisation of Railway Last Mile Operation inside Ports Areas”, in Session 4 “Developments in Baltic Supply Chain transportation through rail, sea and road in strengthening cargo transportation”, on Wednesday, October 23th at 4 pm. The appointment therefore foresees a focus on the digitalisation and optimisation of the last railway mile, a fundamental theme for a real implementation of the intermodal systems of the European ports.
The digitisation of the last railway mile within the ports, together with gate automation, represent a decisive evolution for the future of intermodal transport, allowing a full real-time control of the whole railway process of the ports. Intermodal traffic on the Polish railways grew by 14.7% in 2017, and by 17% in 2018. In September 2019, 600 million euro rail access projects has began, and the port of Gdansk is working on a further implementation with two direct connections to Zilinia and Minsk. The theme of the last railway mile therefore becomes crucial for the integrated development of the infrastructures and for the overall efficiency not only of the ports, but of the whole regional transport system.
Circle continues its international expansion thanks to its presence in the major industry meetings in Europe, the Middle East and Asia, presenting the latest in-house developments and the strategic lines of the company’s near future.
