Accelerating productivity through digitalization and data-sharing between pilots and the port community

Webinar on demand

In recent years we have witnessed how the maritime industry started integrating digital technologies into the operational processes to enhance efficiency. Going digital means leaving behind old manual processes and technologies in favor of automation and innovation. This largely involves real-time information exchange for data-driven decisions and the ability to collaborate digitally.

During this webinar, we discuss the most recent digitalization project in the port of Rotterdam and Houston and how they foster collaboration between the marine pilots and the port community.
