Baltic Port Organization (BPO) has identified that digitalization remains one of the leading topics in the maritime industry. Digital solutions are an increasingly popular, if not necessary, way of assuring a port’s continuous development and competitiveness, not least in the context of increasingly stringent environmental regulations.
Gate automation and communication improvements are also one of the next goals for a number of Baltic ports. For example, Baltic ports are launching port community systems (PCO) and adapting the digital twin technology that would result in smoother operational planning and communication between the various port stakeholders
Digitalization is certainly supporting the ports in their sustainability and environment protection related efforts
