The study Digitalization in Ports in the Latin American (Latam) region, which was commissioned by the RBN Latam team and carried out by Holland House Colombia and STC International in Q4 last year, has been published by The Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO). Check out the report here
With about 80% of world trade carried by sea, ports are an integral part of the global economy as key enablers of international trade. Nevertheless, the negative impacts from port and maritime related activities cannot be overlooked. Particularly those sources resulting from the inefficiencies of port-related activities, which will generally result in congestion or sub-optimal energy consumption, among others. A smarter use of current infrastructure has received increased attention in port communities throughout the past years. With digital technologies as key enablers, a smarter use means to gain competitiveness and reduce inefficiencies, and therefore to reduce negative sustainability impacts. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the digital transformation trend gained further momentum.
With the Dutch expertise as a best practice in the port sector, the purpose of the study Port Digitalization in Latam is twofold. First, to assess the state of play of port digitalization in selected countries of the LATAM region, and second, it explored potential market opportunities for Dutch businesses in the field of port digitalization in Latam.
