Rotterdam Outlines How to Share Data

Rotterdam Outlines How to Share Data

The Port of Rotterdam has released a new whitepaper which explores how the modern, digitally-minded port can engage in meaningful data-sharing by positioning itself in the most conducive position for progress.

The key questions the paper answers are:

  • What is the primary purpose of data sharing and how do you handle it correctly?
  • How do you involve the port community in data sharing?
  • How do you guarantee the reliability of the data you work with?
  • What technical, economic and legal aspects play a part?

Joyce Bliek, Director of Digital Business Solutions at the Port of Rotterdam, said: “Ultimately, we need to see a port as a digital platform.

“Although this doesn’t mean we should become a software house, it does mean we could use data, say, to reduce waiting times, to cut co2 emissions considerably and to know exactly where each container is in the port.”

As well as the above, the whitepaper covers a number of preconditions surrounding the collection, aggregation and sharing of data.

The Port of Rotterdam has begun 2019 on the offensive, releasing several whitepapers exhibiting thought-leadership on several key trends, cementing its place as one of the world’s leading ports in various arenas.

Already this year, Rotterdam has published a highly popular paper on the step-by-step process in becoming a digital port.

This was followed by another well received offering that focused in on the five mega-tends that are impacting the global container handling sphere.
