Five factors are driving the modernization of ports: population, sustainable development, new trade and commerce patterns, global environmental changes and new technological developments. To be successful, ports must take full advantage of new technologies to meet new demands, ensure connectivity in all scenarios, process and use massive amounts of data more efficiently, adapt to green ecosystems, make sustainable development an advantage. competitive and create a collaborative ecosystem for economic zones near ports.

Huawei Smart Port Solution: Help Create World Class Ports

As cross-border e-commerce gains momentum in an increasingly globalized world, regulatory pressure for trade management and facilitation increases. In addition, the pandemic has also brought new inspection and quarantine responsibilities for customs around the world.

Ports are also greatly affected with its modernization, an important area of ​​interest in the digital transformation of customs.

The Huawei Smart Port solution leverages cutting-edge technologies such as converged communications, AI, big data and cloud computing to create an integrated digital base realizing a synergy between the cloud, the network, the edge and the ‘device. The solution focuses on four areas: intelligent customs clearance, visualized collaborative ordering, convenient customs clearance services and efficient overall management. In close collaboration with the main partners of the customs ecosystem, multi-scenario solutions such as integrated online services platform, intelligent customs clearance and inspection, supervision of goods in transit, control center of supervision and management of the port campus have been developed. These facilitate the integration of ports and logistics, enabling smooth port operations and efficient customs supervision.

In particular, the intelligent customs clearance solution integrates computing, storage, network and security capabilities. It brings together an intelligent checkpoint, customs clearance system, as well as monitoring and command services, helping ports to quickly build one-stop intelligent customs clearance capabilities.

Nadim Abdulrahim, Global Government Industry Expert at Huawei, said: “Based on the digital platform, Huawei is building a campus IOC and a fully connected campus network to provide ubiquitous awareness of smart terminals . The CIO facilitates staff access, intelligent vehicle identification, situational awareness in all areas, emergency risk control, campus perimeter alarm, campus video patrol, prevention and intelligent pandemic control and customs clearance situational awareness, covering people, vehicles, objects and places. on one screen. It helps to improve campus operation and service efficiency and achieves a truly secure and convenient smart campus.

During HUAWEI CONNECT 2021, Mr. Shi Zhiyong, Director of Smart City Administration Office of Chongqing Lianglu-Cuntan Free Trade Port Zone, shared his experience of digital transformation: “Based on the capabilities of Huawei’s high-level planning, infrastructure network and digital platform, the port area drives organizational, management, process, personnel and facility transformation and develops five intelligent applications and a command center . So far, the port area now has 13 smart checkpoints, which allow customs clearance in seconds. A converged communications and IoT network has been built to provide intelligent management of nearly 50,000 municipal facilities, covering the entire port area. The port can now access big transport data, which effectively addresses issues such as traffic jams, illegal parking and speeding. With Huawei, the port area has built an industry-leading intelligent brain, which is now the center of information, surveillance, command, coordination and emergency response. The state of operations is now visible, with controllable events and much more manageable services.

Currently, digital technology is driving transformation in all industries. Using its advantages in ICT, Huawei will continue to innovate and develop smart port solutions. We will dive into digital, lead port modernization by leveraging digital technology, unlocking the potential of smart customs.
