Rotterdam teams with IBM to build a connected, smart port of the future

Port of Rotterdam and IBM are going to collaborate on a digitisation initiative to transform the port’s operational environment using Internet of Things (IoT) technologies to benefit the port and its users.
The initiative will also prepare the Port of Rotterdam’s entire 42km site to host connected ships in the future.
It begins with the development of a centralised dashboard application that will collect and process real-time water (hydro), weather (meteo) sensor data and communications data, analysed through the IBM IoT platform.
This will enable a new wave of safer and more efficient traffic management at the port
