New autonomous ITVs to boost operational efficiency at Jebel Ali port

One of the leading trade enablers, DP World, UAE region, and autonomous vehicles, robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) specialist, DGWorld, have entered into a contractual agreement to equip Jebel Ali port with a fleet of autonomous internal terminal vehicles (ITVs) including all related integration with existing operation processes and infrastructure.

DP World has once again manifested its leadership and visionary role by introducing autonomous vehicles and related technologies into their daily operations. These vehicles support their initiatives and strategy of introducing digitalisation and the newest technologies as the new global standard for traditional port operations and supply chains and to enable the future of trade.

The contract signed between the two states that DGWorld will deliver and integrate their autonomous technology into the existing ITV fleet in multiple phases, with the goal of further increasing overall efficiency of the terminal and reducing the size of the currently used fleet at the same time.

Previous trials of this new technology have shown that it is capable of unlocking new potential for efficient and economical automation of already existing container terminals in combination with intensively utilising new AI-based software solutions, which have been jointly integrated by the teams of both parties.
