Smart ports is a topical theme in the maritime industry as ports, terminals, shipping and the logistics chain seek to understand and take advantages of technology to improve the productivity of all aspects of their businesses. As one of the world’s leading maritime consultancies, we‘ve seen momentum building and minds awaken to the gravity of what smart solutions can provide and how they can change our industry, as well as the world itself.
