ICT Group will be present again this year at the TOC Europe in Rotterdam Ahoy. We would like to meet you at our stand: F.36. Here we will inform you about the possibilities and our innovations within Digital Twin, Middleware, Internet of Things, Data Driven and other Smart Solutions that ICT Group offers you.


Driven by relevant data, a digital twin is a virtual mirror of your container terminal. This mirror provides insight into how that asset behaves under a variety of simulated conditions, helping you to improve decision-making and optimise business processes.

A successful digital twin relies on smart technology and an in-depth knowledge of physical assets—but it also requires leadership, credibility and vision.

At ICT Group, we connect our rich heritage of engineering with the latest technological capabilities to co-create digital twins with our partners.


SmartECS provides a unified platform for inter-equipment communication. SmartECS uses a modular, open software architecture that’s highly flexible.

SmartECS is the solution to implement and match the TIC 4.0 standardization. With TIC 4.0 standardization, external systems can be easily connected.

SmartECS liberates terminal operators from vendor lock-in by limiting integration of equipment to the control level. Generic equipment interfaces allow equipment such as AGVs or ASCs from different vendors to work together at peak performance in harmony.

TOC Europe

TOC Europe is the global meeting place for ports, terminals, shipping lines, 3PLs and shippers. TOC Europe is part of a global portfolio of events that brings together container chain stakeholders to learn, debate and network. The event is considered best-in-class by container terminal operators and their suppliers.
