Why Should I Care About Maritime Digitalization?

Digitalization is the idea that all data is provided to all stakeholders in real-time on one open platform to improve efficiency and accurate decision-making. Digitalization leverages on digitization (transformation from physical to digital) by bringing value to company roles instead of just replacing them.

Port digitalization is the digital transformation of port processes. These processes are always collecting new data, evolving, and learning.

Port digitalization is extremely effective for operations.

Ports can adopt automation processes, process cargo, and containers at a higher speed with less error, and increase their effectiveness.  

Port digitalization, in the future, can go as far as to create interconnectedness between all maritime actors. This is a long-term solution that would connect an international network of Smart Ports which would increase transparency between shipping companies, ports, and stakeholders.  

Port digitalization is changing the container handling industry. With a growing world and economy, ships are getting larger, and more containers are being unloaded at terminal docks. Thanks to port digitalization, port quay operations are becoming safer, more efficient, more accurate, and more traceable. This fixes the past issue of terminals being unsafe due to heavy machinery, data inaccuracy, and untraceable activities.  

With digitalized quay operations, there is full automation of dangerous equipment like cranes, which with technology have operators using advanced data to control them from remote tower

What Is a Smart Port and a Digital Twin?

Port digitalization is the foundation of Smart Ports and Digital Twins

A Smart Port is more effective, more performant, and more economically competitive port. Not only that, but Smart Ports consider residents a key stakeholder of their activities. They use realtime information, a collaborative management approach, and essentially provide more with less.   

A Smart Port is green, digital, and more connected to logistics, industrial environments, and sustainable development resources. They are automated ports using new technologies while caring more for the marine environment 

Smart Port technologies include Big Data, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), blockchain technology, and 5G connection 

A Digital Twin is a virtual representation of the real world. Therefore, a Digital Twin is a digital representation of the entire port. This includes the physical objects, processes, relationships, and behaviors between all activities and actors. With a Digital Twin, authorities can better manage assets and observe the entirety of operations. They are the foundation for the future of shipping, which is autonomous vessels. They can even visualize the current versus expected performance of their port and compare themselves to others internationally. Digital Twins take maritime data that is challenging to understand and turn it into comprehensible data that increases business efficiency.  

Digital Twins can analyze how rising sea levels due to global warming will affect their operations, protect environmental zones thanks to powerful AI tools, and easily share and collaborate with global supply chain actors.
