What is a Smart Port?

Smart Port Values

A Smart Port equips the workforce with the relevant skills and technology to solve the unique internal and external challenges of the organisation, and to facilitate the movement of goods, delivery of services and smooth flow of information.

Using a holistic approach, the Smart Port achieves results without creating new challenges internally or elsewhere in the supply chain eco-system.

The Smart Port minimises the negative impacts of its activities on the natural environment and enhances the surrounding communities - economically and socially.

The material benefits of chosen technologies allow the Smart Port to: -

  • Improve efficiency to gain competitive advantage

  • Increase business resilience to economic shocks or disruptive forces

  • Extract maximum value from physical assets

  • Develop new revenue streams based on digital value propositions

  • Increase employee engagement and wellbeing

  • Achieve and exceed environmental commitments

"A SMART PORT IS NOT DEFINED BY THE USE OF ANY ONE PARTICULAR TECHNOLOGY OR CONCEPT"
