Smart Ports Seminar, April 23, 2013
The increasing volume of transport flows between continents, combined with all kinds of offshore activities, is resulting in increasing shipping intensity in coastal waters and ports. In some sectors, this increase in volume is accompanied with the development of extremely large ships. Furthermore, there is pressure from society to make the shipping industry ‘greener’.

Development of new port infrastructure in times of crises demands a smart approach. It has to be smart to come up with cost effective, sustainable and safe designs, smart to operate the port efficiently and smart to make port operations more environmental friendly.

To be able to share views and look at future developments, MARIN has organised a Smart Ports Seminar on April 23, 2013 in Wageningen.
