Around the world, digitalisation is making huge advances. New technologies, new players, new alliances, new business models. The Port Authority has decided to make a targeted commitment to innovation. This will allow us to take optimal advantage of the opportunities presented by digitalisation.
Together with clients, chain partners and digital platforms, we work to make Rotterdam a hotspot for the development of the most promising digital innovations. In addition, we play an active part in the collection and exchange of data and information. So that we can not only make our own port smarter, but also optimise our logistics chains – resulting in the seamless circulation of traffic and cargo flows.
The Port Authority has set up a new unit to give extra impetus to its digital ambitions: Digital Business Solutions. Our key aim with DBS is to connect more effectively to digital trends that impact the global playing field of the logistics and ports sectors – and to position ourselves more emphatically within these developments.
