The British Ports Association (BPA), along with the Port of Rotterdam has launched a new joint smart ports paper examining the digitalisation of ports. The white paper can be found on the Port of Rotterdam website, the link can be found here.

The paper is part of BPA’s Port Futures programme, a thought leadership initiative that brings together industry partners, innovators and experts on topic relating to shipping and ports.

Commenting on the paper, Joyce Bliek, director of Digital Business Solutions at the Port of Rotterdam Authority, said, “Digitalisation presents new opportunities to not only raise efficiency within logistics chains but also improve their sustainability. We believe in the added value of a global network of connected ports around the world. Such a network can facilitate the active exchange of data, both within port communities and between individual ports.”
