Tianjin,28 January 2023 (TDI):  Tianjin Port Group and Huawei declared that they would increase cooperation by creating a digital clone of the Port and automating and smartly utilizing 5G and L4 autonomous driving technology.

Huawei Technologies, a Shenzhen-based telecommunications equipment manufacturer, has achieved reduced carbon emissions in a Tianjin port by utilizing 5G technology and the BeiDou navigation satellite system.

The firm claimed to have created the first carbon-free port terminal in the world at Section C Terminal in the Beijiang Port Area of the Port of Tianjin. It expressed the hope that this undertaking may serve as a showcase for green ports all around the world.

Yue Kun, chief technical officer of Huawei’s Smart Road, Waterway & Port Business Unit said that “we are excited about the business potential of 5G + Level 4 (L4) autonomous driving sectors.”

According to Yang Jiemin, vice president of Tianjin Port Group, “These innovations used at the Port of Tianjin have a significant impact on the port industry.

They are creating new value for ports by improving operating environments, promoting green and low-carbon development, and increasing operational efficiency.”

Jiemin described that this plan had three phases: building new automated terminals, modernizing existing terminals, and undergoing digital transformation.

Yang Jiemin explained how the new solution combines 5G and L4 autonomous driving technologies. It has been put into large-scale commercial deployment for the first time. 

This resolution has given the world’s traditional container ports a new blueprint for modernization and transformation.                                                                   

According to Yang, the port industry is significantly influenced by the technologies being deployed at the Port.

This development will help a variety of businesses as next-generation digital technologies, such as 5G and AI, are coupled to address industry issues, support the transformation and modernization of the digital economy, and create social value.

Zero-Carbon Port Terminal in Pakistan 

According to a recent announcement from Tianjin Port Group and Huawei, the world’s first innovative, the driverless, zero-carbon port terminal will be built in Pakistan using a digital twin.

The creation of intelligent ports is intended to increase productivity, cut costs, and enhance user experience.

Vice President of Huawei Middle East and Central Asia, Shunli Wang, stated: “Pakistani ports are about to undergo revolutionary, intelligent, carbon-free, completely automated digital operations that make use of 5G, AI, cloud, and other innovative digital technologies. 

We are eager to apply our knowledge to make ports in the area safer, more effective, intelligent, greener, and more efficient.” 

The digital twin of the Pakistani port terminal will mark a significant advancement in the creation of intelligent ports. It will establish a new benchmark for port sustainability and efficiency.

The collaboration between Tianjin Port Group and Huawei will combine the latest technologies and knowledge to build a genuinely innovative and effective port. 

Additionally, Pakistan’s economics and logistics sector will benefit from this relationship. As a result of the Port’s efficient and ecologically friendly operations, more businesses and investors will visit Pakistan, fostering job creation.


Since the start of a trade and technology conflict between the US and China in 2018, Huawei has been subject to numerous US sanctions.

It had to reduce the output of its smartphones and sell off the Honor brand because it was not allowed to purchase expensive chips from the US.

 The production of Kirin chips by TSMC for Huawei ended in September 2020, which started a countdown for HiSilicon’s chip stock.

Huawei used up all of its semiconductor stock in the third quarter last year, and its global market share for smartphone chipsets decreased to zero.

The United States, along with certain other nations in Europe and North America, have all outlawed Huawei’s 5G technology.

Huawei has expanded its business into smart ports and mines in recent years. The corporation created its first corps, the Coal Mine Corps, in January 2021.

In October of the same year, it produced four different associations: the Seaport, Smart Highway, Data Center Energy, and Smart Photovoltaic.

The world’s first innovative, carbon-free Section C Terminal began conducting extensive commercial operations in October 2021. This terminal uses 5G and L4 autonomous driving technology to make it safer and more effective.

It uses China’s BeiDou navigation system to direct robots to open containers and remotely operate dock cranes to hoist loaded containers off cargo ships 

Huawei’s Seaport Corps developed a collaborative innovation body with Tianjin Port Group and other partners to address “smart green” port concerns. It seeks to offer a “China solution” for developing innovative, environmentally friendly ports elsewhere.
