On Thursday July 20th, the Tarragona Port Authority’s function room will host the country’s first 'Smart Digital Port' conference, organised by the Fundació Tarragona 2017 Smart Mediterranean City, with the support of the Port of Tarragona, the State Ports and Repsol.
The conference aims to address issues related to the digital transformation of ports and will bring together a considerable number of port administration and logistics professionals, as well as professionals related to companies associated with these fields.
In total there are five conferences and round tables scheduled, focusing on the development and implementation of new technologies that aid and improve commercial and port activities, setting them in the context of the 'smart city' project.
The aim is to strengthen and consider the use of new technologies as one of the ways of achieving more efficient, effective and sustainable port logistics; values that the Port of Tarragona has already been implementing for some years.
