ECT and ICT: meeting the future head on

Rotterdam-based container terminal operator ECT is currently working on automation systems that the company believes will define the future of container terminal operations. ICT provides software maintenance and standby services and is working on a number of improvement projects and new systems and applications. ECT and ICT are also involved in several innovation processes, aimed at keeping ECT several steps ahead of its competitors, both in Rotterdam and beyond.

Europe Container Terminals (ECT) is the leading and most advanced container terminal operator in Europe. The company handles the vast majority of the millions of containers passing through the port of Rotterdam each year. ECT has two deep-sea terminals operating 24/7, 365 days a year, and its main priority is to deliver optimum service and performance to its many clients.

“We are working very closely and intensively with ICT to make the changes and IT improvements we need to compete in the years ahead. We’re basically working to make the future happen, today. The new terminals on Maasvlakte 2 are very advanced, very state-of-the-art and will be very hard to beat. But ECT and ICT are currently working together to develop what we call ECT 4.0. That will be way beyond state-of-the-art.”
