In recent years, changes in the conditions relevant to container terminals can be seen in multiple areas, namely: terminal technologies, customer demands, and environmental rules. These changes naturally impacted the innovation activities of the terminals which have been more complex and/or of different nature in many cases. As a result, the challenges associated with innovations have changed as well and container ter
