Flensburg, 21/03/2021: Marcus Brandenburg and his colleagues Michael Kugler and Sander Limant from Maritime Center of FUAS have published a paper entitled “Automizing the manual link in maritime supply chains? An analysis of twistlock handling automation in container terminals” in the peer-reviewed journal “Maritime Transport Research”. The study assesses the use of automated twistlock handling systems in maritime container logistics. It reveals that most implementation barriers consist of technological issues, followed by economic and strategic barriers. The study identifies implementation strategies and major benefits of this automation. An innovation framework for this field of automation is conceptualized as scientific contribution. Practical implications include recommendations for relevant stakeholders in container logistics.
