Digitisation projects presence at S.T.L. Kalkar

On 27 & 28 September 2022, the inland navigation branch met at the German-Dutch trade fair Shipping-Technics-Logistics-Kalkar. Alberding GmbH was on board with ts own stand and presented the status quo of the research projects DigitalSOW and AutonomSOW II in its function as consortium leader. Intensive discussions with various industry players showed great interest in the research projects in the Berlin metropolitan region and generated a great benefit in regard to information for the further progress of the projects. The fair also offered the opportunity to exchange ideas with similarly positioned projects about the current challenges in inland navigation. It became clear that the majority of branch representatives are interested in the trend towards digitalisation, but that there are also sceptical voices with regard to the benefits..
