What is The Smart Ports Alliance?

The Smart Ports Alliance is a group of forward-thinking people, working together to identify the best ways to apply new digital technologies in the ports, terminals, and supply chains they serve.  Our vision is to create a long-term, viable future for an inter-connected industry.

Our mission is to provide our members with the networking opportunities, tools, and resources they need to collaborate on solving common industry problems and make clear plans to meet their own business priorities, while also working to support the combined achievement of industry goals.

Our tools help companies with the planning and execution of a transition from Industry 3.0 to Industry 4.0 levels of digital proficiency. They also lay the groundwork for the use of new technologies that promise to reduce costs, increase efficiency, and make the customer experience better.

We help our members to help their businesses become more environmentally friendly by promoting the smart use of digital technology to solve specific business problems and build a better future aligned with societal and economic goals.

Helping ports and terminals get started with Digitalisation

Digitalisation is more than buying new systems.  Achieving Industry 4.0 levels of adoption requires a new approach to technology investment, implementation and digital asset management.

Our goal is to empower a connected network of ports and terminals with the knowledge, skills and tools to accelerate the delivery of successful Digitalisation and Business Change.


The Smart Ports Alliance offers a range of kick-start services, designed to help you get under way with digitalisation and change programmes.
