Day 11 Rotterdam Netherlands 5/25/22

Colton Newton

Today the group took a bike tour of the city. Bikes are huge in the Netherlands. There are dedicated roadways for bikes because there are so many. The group toured the large ports in this city. Rotterdam is the largest port in Europe. There is a high priority on automation for the port. AGVs cranes and vehicles to load and unload all cargo containers. Drugs are a huge problem for the port and they believe they only catch a small percentage of cocain that comes through the port. The issue is that to keep efficiency they can only check a few containers.
