In this episode of Future Port-Talk, Jens Meier, Managing Director of the Hamburg Port Authority (HPA), tells us how the HPA wants to establish the Port of Hamburg as a center for innovation. A wide variety of technologies are being tested here: For example, drones that transport loads through the air, drones that operate on the water, 3D printing for the production of spare parts, or even innovative transport systems such as a magnetic levitation train. This "Futur Port" episode also looks at innovations in the fields of infrastructure management, traffic management and traffic network control.
