In focus – Smart Ports
Ports sit at the interface between ocean and land-based logistics. But to be more than just a gateway, they must find ways of including all the participants they accommodate into integrated systems. Lloyd’s List explores the so-called ‘Smart Port’ concept, one that is rapidly evolving as ports embrace the digitised world.

Long-term goal is to improve data flow among cargo owners, shipping lines, and other stakeholders so that port and terminal operators have an extended window of time to track inbound cargo
Ports that fail to embrace the smart concept risk being overtaken by competitors who make the most of smart-port technologies, according to BCG
