demo VR training
In cooperation with the Port Authority Rotterdam TBA presents a Virtual Reality game which makes users aware of the complex processes at logistic hubs. Visitors can play an especially developed World Port Days mission of simulated (real life APMT and RWG) terminals in virtual reality with the Oculus Rift. This virtual reality set up is the most advanced training game based on extensive (real case) data for automated terminals worldwide. These virtual 3D terminals have been built to train terminal personnel in near-to-live situations without disturbing the ongoing processes on a terminal.

During the first weekend of September, the city of Rotterdam celebrates its port during the World Port Days. What once started as the one-day event has since grown into the Netherlands’ largest annual public maritime event, which welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors over the course of three full days. Numerous companies open their doors to public to show the latest innovations in one of the largest ports in the world. A unique opportunity to check out areas in the port that normally wouldn’t be able to accessible. Port authority Rotterdam manages, operates and develops the port and industrial area of Rotterdam.

The international nature of Rotterdam is reflected in its focus on innovation. This makes Rotterdam the smartest port and the most important logistical hub of Europe and beyond. Start-ups, entrepreneurs, and investors from around the globe flock to Rotterdam to set up shop and contribute to making each day better than the last; to pave the way and address global challenges such as digitisation and energy transition in a quintessentially Rotterdam way.
