The congress and international exhibition is being held for the first time in the Valparaíso Region. With the support of the Minister of Transport and Communications, Juan Carlos Muñoz, Trans-Port 2022 began, the largest meeting of the maritime-port industry in Chile, which is being held for the first time in Valparaiso, specifically at the Puerto Valparaiso Passenger Terminal, and which this year presents a rich program with a focus on innovation. The meeting, which began on Tuesday, September 27 and ends on Thursday, September 29, is a space designed to facilitate the acquisition of new knowledge and to make international trends known. Likewise, it supports the relationship between companies, the dissemination of public policies, accelerate innovation processes, and encourage the generation of new business in the maritime-port industry, both nationally and internationally. “It is very important to have this event that brings together the public sector and port companies of our country, which have such a relevant role in national logistics, along with people working in the industry, in addition to representatives of foreign companies, who come especially to these activities and give it an international importance, with a focus on highlighting the best tactics in port matters,” said the Minister of Transport and honorary president of the event. In the new 2022 version, Trans-Port presents a complete program of international talks, linked to the present and future of the industry, which seeks to contribute to the economic development of the participating countries, providing solutions for the correct maritime-port operation. “It is key for our country to be able to unblock any restriction that prevents or limits the capacity to receive export cargo. In this sense, we are working with companies to improve their capacity. There are several works we are doing here, such as increasing the size of cargo capacity in the ports, improving the relationship between the port and the cities, encouraging concern for the environment, improving working conditions, among other issues, and this is the best place to address them in a comprehensive and robust manner,” Muñoz concluded. INAUGURATION With the presence of the general manager of Puerto Valparaíso, Franco Gandolfo; the vice-president of Puerto Valparaíso, Nicole Pastene; the president of Puerto San Antonio, Sally Bendersky; the general manager of Terminal Pacifico Sur, Oliver Weinreich; and the general manager of FISA, of the GL events Group, Francisco Sotomayor, the eighth version of the maritime port meeting was inaugurated, which was well attended. The event organized by FISA, of the GL events Group, will seek to boost trade, create jobs and contribute to the economic revival of the country through new businesses and the interconnection between the various areas of the maritime port sector, both nationally and internationally. The vice-president of Puerto Valparaíso, Nicole Pastene, pointed out that “we are going to share different experiences with more than 50 international exhibitors. Today we have the challenge of port expansion in Valparaiso, to increase our level of cargo transfer. Therefore, being able to share with international experience is fundamental for us, and also to be able to reactivate this meeting space that goes in harmony with the city and the development of our work”. Sally Bendersky, president of the Port of San Antonio, said that “Trans-Port means a boost to the development of the industry. All the people present here are linked to the maritime port ecosystem and have the possibility of meeting, requesting and exploring joint actions and business with the entire industry. This is not only a port operation”. FISA’s general manager, Francisco Sotomayor, added that “maritime port activity accounted for 93.1% of world trade in 2021. In the same year in Chile, taxes collected by foreign trade reached 31% of everything collected by the State, i.e., 1 out of every 3 pesos that the State spends, is largely contributed by this sector of the economy. These figures clearly reflect the importance of the maritime-port sector in our economy, and that is why today we are happy to carry out this new version of Trans-Port, which we hope will be a boost to the reactivation of the industry and mean a contribution to local and national economic development”. PANELS AND LECTURES Trans-Port started the international congress entitled “Driving the Next Generation Maritime-Port Industry”, which has 50 speakers from 10 countries in the Americas and Europe, with great experience and expertise in the field. In this new version, the congress has 6 panels spread over two days, where relevant topics for the industry are addressed, such as the next generation of decarbonization and transport infrastructures; the port and maritime supply chain; and hyperconnectivity and emerging technologies. Among the most prominent panels are: “Closing the circle of sustainability without giving up economic and social wealth”; “Smart integration of infrastructure, technology and processes to create a predictive, more efficient and productive logistics chain”; “Public policies driving next-generation ports”; “Ports as innovation ‘hubs’: an opportunity to trigger economic growth in the territory”; and “Operational standards and trainings as drivers of innovation.” It should be noted that between November 29 and December 2, the Valparaiso Passenger Terminal will soon host the Expo Naval 2022, the most important international exhibition and congress on maritime defense, which will be a boost for local economic activity.

Press Trans-Port 2022 – www.trans-port.cl

For the first time in Latin America, a new technology that could replace traditional OCR systems and transform traceability and security processes in ports and terminals with minimal investment in infrastructure is presented at Trans-Port Chile. Carles Rúa, Head of Innovation of the Port of Barcelona, will also present at the TOC America, in Lima, the success story as a pioneer in using AllRead technology, and what have been the results thanks to its use. Barcelona, September 23, 2022 – AllRead, a Spanish technology company, specialized in artificial vision systems (Computer Vision), lands in Latin America to present for the first time the applications of this technology in two of the most important events of the maritime and port industry in Latin America, Trans-Port Chile and TOC America. It is a solution based on Artificial Intelligence (neural networks), capable of capturing any numerical or textual data from images and videos, from any camera, cell phone or drone, and extract the necessary information even in the most extreme conditions under which goods, containers and vehicles operate in ports and terminals. AllRead’s technology works at any point, from security cameras, cell phones or drones. First launch in Latin America: Trans-Port Chile 2022 Starting in Valparaiso, Chile, the technology will be presented on September 28 at the Trans-Port event, which brings together more than 2,000 visitors from 15 countries, including influential leaders, technical experts and professionals from the port industry, gathered in dozens of presentations on the problems and new solutions in the sector. It will start on September 27th until September 29th. During the course of the event there will be more than 40 exhibitors, including the Spanish company AllRead, which, with only 3 years of life, is already applying its solution to more than 25 ports and terminals around the world. Jenniffer Rincón, AllRead’s Business Development Manager, will be present at the event to show the evolution of Artificial Intelligence and the future option it provides to railway operators such as Renfe and to ports and terminals in countries such as France with Naviland Cargo, Spain with the Port of Barcelona and Algeciras, Italy with the Darsena Toscana Port Terminal, Portugal with the Port of Leixoes and Mexico, among others. Companies that are already applying this solution to improve their operations, traceability and security of goods and their facilities. The exhibition of its technology will take place on the second day of the event, September 28, in the thematic block: “From disruptive technologies to disruptive business. Meeting the needs of smart ports”, from 12:00 to 13:00 (Chilean time). The success case with the Port of Barcelona, presented in Lima Carles Rúa, Director of Innovation of the Port of Barcelona, will participate in this presentation through the success case made in the port, as a reference and pioneer in the use of this technology in Spain, in the second Latin American event in which AllRead will be present, the TOC America, in Lima, Peru. After the presentation of the technology at TOC Europe, in Holland, it will be shown how, thanks to Artificial Vision and Machine Learning, it is possible to detect from any camera and with the highest precision any type of code in the physical environment, without the need for anything more than a phone or mobile device with a camera or any pre-installed security camera, and even from a drone or a crane. While existing port OCR solutions require optimal conditions and significant hardware installation, AllRead technology is able to identify containers, rail cars, vehicle or trailer license plates, security seals from any source with minimal infrastructure. Accuracy levels above the usual standards are achieved even in challenging environments with motion (over 60 km/hour), blurring, stacking, darkness, low visibility, long distances or complicated perspectives. The technology reads and digitizes text and codes in all types of environments at high speed, or in low visibility, with minimal infrastructure.

Press Trans-Port 2022 – www.trans-port.cl

Adapting processes in the port and port industry to the challenges brought by technological development is much more than digitizing processes or getting on the cloud. Gtd, a telecommunications and IT services company with more than 40 years of experience, knows this very well, and therefore has an ecosystem of high-level partners, which allows it to make available to the industry a complete portfolio of services, whose implementation aims to find the greatest potential of each business to direct the work of adaptation in a sustainable manner. Network architecture and protocols, along with the exchange of information between systems in a secure, auditable and compliant manner, in addition to ensuring proper convergence with the IT world, is part of the pool of services with which the company, with presence in Latin America and Europe, promotes its customers in terms of digitization, within the framework of the Trans-port 2022 fair. In addition to this, there are specific requirements of each industry, such as the port industry, for which Gtd has developed a solution for traceability and monitoring of assets, collaborators, vehicles and/or machinery through a GPS that is complemented with a complete multi-carrier network, capable of securely transmitting information to an application, to visualize the route on a map and, thus, efficiently manage the resources directed to this task, improving the customer’s profitability averages. Companies such as Prisa, among others, have shown an average 32% decrease in truck usage and an increase in customer satisfaction from 90 to 97% thanks to the partnership with Gtd. “We are more than a service provider. We work to be a true ally of our customers, accompanying their transformation and ensuring the operational continuity of IT and OT platforms, such as Baas, hosting, housing, cybersecurity and consulting services. This gives us a great advantage in the market, as we provide each client with a service tailored to their requirements and challenges”, says María Alejandra Castillo, director of Gtd’s Industry and Services Department. Adapting to emerging technologies and offering connectivity requires a robust network of infrastructure and professionals of excellence to ensure that the company maintains its operational capacity for its clients. “We not only work to solve present challenges, our focus is on the future, because we make technology improve and simplify people’s lives, and for this, it is essential to be prepared for its constant evolution”, he says. The safety of port industry collaborators is another aspect that cannot be left aside when talking about digital transformation. For this reason, Gtd can detect risky behaviors through analytical videos and GPS traceability, which together with the use of Artificial Intelligence, allows alerting about those aspects that require the implementation of safety mechanisms or guidelines for workers.

The most important exhibition of the chilean maritime-port industry to be held in Valparaiso from September 27 to 29, 2022, was present at the event that brought together the entire chilean port community to deliver the results of the Gender Study on Tuesday June 28 in Santiago de Chile. With the participation as guest of the Executive Director of Trans-Port 2022, Mr. Rodrigo Lobo, the presentation of the results of the “Study of Gender Equity in the Maritime-Port Industry in Chile” was held at the premises of the Universidad de los Andes, before government authorities, executives of companies in the industry, representatives of unions of port companies, professionals and workers in the sector, and academics and students. Its authors are Dr. Rosa González and Dr. Andrés García, professors at the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Sciences of the Universidad de los Andes, and Daniella de Luca, an academic at the School of International Business of the Universidad de Valparaíso. A salary gap of almost 11 percent between women and men working in the maritime-port industry, but which is reduced to 6.37% when comparing people in the same socio-demographic and working conditions, determined a research led by academics from the Universidad de los Andes and Universidad de Valparaíso. At the time of the conclusions, Professor García commented that it is confirmed that “the sector is masculinized; even in equal conditions, a significant gap in remunerations is observed, which grows as the experience of the workers increases; women declare a greater affectation by negative aspects and discriminatory treatment, a greater sacrifice of their personal and family life, a lower knowledge of protocols, and the perception that there is a lower implementation of business practices with a gender approach”. The research group finally delivered recommendations, including “encouraging the incorporation of more women, especially in sectors where they are underrepresented; seeking greater equity in career development; reviewing remuneration; creating information campaigns and programs so that women know better what to do in a situation that affects them; generating protocols with a gender approach; implementing business practices in gender equality; and that companies become certified in the Nch3262-2012 standard for the management of gender equality and the reconciliation of family and personal life with work.” At Trans-port 2022 the participation of women will be key in a series of presentations that will address topics related to the transition of the maritime-port industry to green energy and decarbonization, the importance of standards and solutions for complex systems, sustainable and innovative port transformation, and the analysis of the infrastructure and efficiency crisis of global supply chains.
