Ashdod Port Announces Winning Start-ups In First Ever Collaboration Program In Israeli Ports

Ashdod Port announces winning start-ups in first ever collaboration program in Israeli ports

Ashdod, Israel, (PortSEurope) January 7, 2021 – Ashdod Port Company has selected the winners of a tender for cyber defense systems and additional components to be incorporated in the port’s activities. The unnamed, chosen start-ups operate in the fields of logistics, operations and security and offer technological solutions for everyday port operations. These solutions should place the Ashdod port at the forefront of innovation in
the world of sea ports. One new task involves transforming containers into “smart” containers, weighing containers automatically and precisely and providing real time information to significantly improve the efficiency of various processes in the port.  A second start-up will provide protection against cyber-attacks to the various maritime systems in the port. In the framework of the collaboration between the winning start-ups and the Ashdod Port, the start-ups will gain access to the vast amounts of information and data in the port. They will be able to develop technologies of significant value in terms of operations, efficiency and service at the port.  Orna Hausman Bechor, chair of the Ashdod Port, added: “we have broken through to created access and connection to the worlds of innovation and technology which were barred from us till now. We bridged the gap between the fast-paced and advanced language of the start-ups and the excess bureaucracy which often is the problem of governmental companies. I am proud to be the head of the first port in Israel to rise to the challenge and start the process. As part of the port’s preparation for competition and as part of the organizational change we are undergoing, the integration of technologies into our daily operations will take the port forward to an advanced global standard”.
