Worldwide there are approximately 3,000 merchant ports and the work of the Harbour Master can vary widely from country to country and from port to port even within the same country.
The Smart Ports Summit, 19-20 February 2020, brings together the experts and innovators who are addressing the real need for optimatision of global supply chains and ports to secure fast and efficient movement of goods, manage mega vessels and meet sustainability targets.
Shippers have become increasingly frustrated with lack of visibility, communication, modern equipment and technology at port hubs. Problems often arise whereby a full logistics team is not ready to receive a vessel; leading to unnecessary delays with transporting goods to their final destination.
What can ports do to be more transparent for shippers?
To overcome these difficulties, ports and their supply chains are transforming into smart port ecosystems. Key to embracing this change is the adoption of data-sharing, transparency, collaboration, fast and well-connected software and corresponding cyber security protections.
Exclusive: Introducing the Just-in-Time Arrival Concept
The pioneers behind the Just om Time Concept at the Port of Hamburg have chosen the Smart Port Summit as the venue to announce their results. Created by Wärtsilä, HVCC Hamburg Vessel Coordination Center and Carnival Maritime - the findings from these innovative stakeholders will be presented for the first time at the Summit.
Join us at the Smart Ports Summit this February to find out how the marine industry is adapting to customer demands and paving the way to a new, faster approach to handling vessels and cargo.

Aids to Navigation (AtoN) have evolved over time.
As new technology emerges, asset managers have a large range of options and features to consider. This document identifies how clever AtoN design and functionality can help authorities reduce operational costs and improve the visibility of their connected devices.
Aids to Navigation (AtoN) play a pivotal role in maritime safety and extend much further than being the traffic lights of the sea.
We are a long way from the days of a traditional lighthouse whose kerosene lamp served as a simple warning of danger ahead.
The navigational tools available to mariners today are vast and they continue to evolve as new technologies are realized.
Types of AtoN
Congestion within the world’s ports and shipping channels continues to grow, with the maritime industry relying on AtoN to ensure navigational safety and to manage traffic conditions.
On 2 March the (UK) Maritime & Coastguard Agency issued the eleven-page document entitled: MIN 656 (M): Understanding the long-term impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on seafarer wellbeing.
This Marine Information Note (MIN) provides guidance for ship owners on the stressors which have been created or exacerbated by the conditions throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and provides some mitigating strategies.
The document provides information on the potentially long-lasting and far-reaching impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on seafarer wellbeing. It provides guidance for ship owners on the stressors which have been created or exacerbated by the conditions throughout the pandemic and provides some mitigating strategies.
In this document the term ship owner is used in the sense that it is used in health and safety regulation, as the person responsible for the operation of the ship.
This is often the same organisation as the ‘company’ referred to in the ISM code.
