Maritime transport and port logistics are currently undergoing a rapid process of transformation. The new configuration of supply chains in the post-COVID scenario, the conflict in Ukraine, rising prices due to the energy crisis and climate change as a backdrop, characterise the current framework of uncertainty. In this context of disruption and high volatility, the logistics-port sector and maritime transport must provide a global response to adapt to the new challenges and scenarios.
Industry 4.0 technologies have an indisputable impact on port transformation on its way towards the Port 4.0 model, where digitisation and standardisation are a lever to harmonise operational processes and efficiently exchange information shared by ships and ports.
Disruptive technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT) or sensor networks are already being tested in port-logistics environments for the digitisation of processes that contribute to the competitiveness of ports.
Likewise, digitisation is a key driver in the integration and interoperability of the different modes of transport, contributing to the exchange of information in the multimodal logistics chain in an efficient, simplified and harmonised way.
