Large international ports are complex organisations
They manage and maintain assets, facilities, utility networks, and utility consumption. They coordinate and optimise transportation infrastructure and minimise traffic congestion and environmental impacts. They coordinate leases and tenants and monitor performance. And they must coordinate all these activities to ensure unencumbered throughput to protect profit and sustainability.
To be effective, modern ports must realise the value in their information.
However, even the best ports, characterised by their silos of information, only share data at the departmental level. Each team collects its own data – about assets, leases, facilities, weather, cargo, emissions, employees, and more. Yet each team relies on the others. They work best when they share information and collaborate freely with each other and other port stakeholders. Thus, an effective information-sharing platform is the keystone of a smart port environment.
Increasingly, the most progressive ports around the world are turning to Geographic Information System (GIS) technology as their underpinning information-sharing platform.
