Multimodal & Seaports

Technology is now at the Heart of the Modern Seaport

That’s good news given that by the end of 2017, global shipping of container traffic is expected to significantly outstrip seaport capacity.

With such large anticipated increases in demand, port and intermodal operators need to focus more closely on efficiency and speed. After all, in busy seaports, demand will always exceed supply. And, with the arrival of ultra-large container ships, which can transport up to 40% more than existing ships, the challenges are set to become even more acute. Increasingly, port authorities and carriers are looking to technology to achieve their goals by re-designing and streamlining port-centric logistics.

In partnership with our key suppliers, Renovotec have helped numerous ports with putting wireless, mobile and rugged technology at the centre of their business operations. View our Case Studies on our new microsite and solution for Yard management, Wireless Security & Infrastructure Solutions, latest products and much more.

We offer a whole host of products designed to meet the exacting requirements of a busy seaport such as:


System integrity is critical at ports. It requires 100% connectivity – from the point of decision to the point of activity.


Mobile computers connect seamlessly via Wi-Fi or GPRS/UMTS that will give you real-time operations.


Increasing security measures at gate check-in/check-out at ports and intermodal facilities may delay operations. Rugged hand-held mobile computers speed-up cargo data capture and control, thanks to their ergonomics and usability in any weather conditions.


Loading and unloading ships, and moving and stacking containers are demanding jobs that require precision. Vehicle-mount computers provide crane operators with clear information, regardless of lighting and weather conditions, thanks to their large, bright and crisp displays.
