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..
