Enabling safe, sustainable and efficient ports
PEMA’s mission is to provide a forum and public voice for the global port equipment and technology sectors, reflecting their critical role in enabling safe, secure, sustainable and productive ports and thereby supporting world maritime trade. Chief among our aims is to foster good relations within the communities we represent, by providing a forum for the exchange of views on global trends in port equipment and technology design, manufacture, operation and maintenance. PEMA also aims to promote and support the global role of the port equipment and technology industries by raising awareness with the media, customers and other stakeholders; forging relations with other industry associations and bodies; and contributing to best practice initiatives. PEMA membership is open to suppliers of port equipment, providers of technology that supports port handling operations, and consultants in the fields of port and equipment design.

This Information Paper is intended to provide a high-level overview of the use of laser technology in the ports and terminals sector. The document describes how laser technology works and how it is used today in port and terminal applications, both manned and automated. The various types of laser system are reviewed in depth, together with a detailed overview of technology deployment in ship-to-shore, yard, horizontal transport and gate operations.
Prepared annually, these surveys are divided into three main equipment areas: ship-to-shore container cranes, yard container cranes and mobile port handling equipment, covering reach stackers, FLTs and terminal tractors.
