In recent decades, ports have been going through a continuous transition of becoming more open to their communities. They have evolved from being civil works managers to service providers, and this transformation has led to more and more information being exchanged between the port and its environment. Thus, port authorities began to exchange information electronically with their partners, first using electronic data interchange (EDI), and later implementing port community systems (PCS). With the development of the internet, ports also started to publish information on their websites, first static data and subsequently dynamic information, creating a communication channel with its environment that is firmly consolidated. This opening up process has affected the interaction with ports’ business partners, like ship agents, terminals, shipping lines etc. and also the relationship with its local community. A vast number of ports are located in the vicinity or heart of cities. This fact has meant that the opening up of the ports has needed to respond to pressure from citizens wanting to know about the port as a part of their home city. In this spirit, a lot of port-city integration projects have been developed all around the globe.
‘Smart’ is a very fashionable term. In recent years people have been talking about Smart in a range of ways
The authors discuss the impact of data sharing and how electronic data interchange has made ports and terminals much more open to their communities. A case in point is the Port of Cartagena, which has been used to illustrate how the adoption of the Posidonia SmartPort app has reinforced its relationship with the port community and stakeholders, consolidates the integration of the port within the city environment and boosts the positioning of the port within the cruise industry.
