Transporting goods by container was one of the most dramatic shapers of globalisation because it let businesses and consumers in North America and Europe benefit from far cheaper labour and production costs in other parts of the world.

During the latter years, the notion of smartness has reached the maritime industry (for example, smart containers, smart supply chains, and smart ports) as an implementation of intelligent decision-making empowered by digitalisation.

The ever-increasing size and cargo volumes for commercial vessels require ports to be growingly digital, sustainable and connected. These requirements highlight the complexity of today’s port infrastructure and define the competitive environment. 5G, Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, autonomous transport and blockchain technology are the necessary tools of this competition. However, to become more efficient and handle higher volumes of goods, it is not enough to adopt these technologies.

And, above all, ports and maritime transport inaugurated global trade and the creation of international value chains.
