The Algeciras Port Authority considers that Port authorities should embrace technology and strive to become ecosystem orchestrators, fostering cooperation, improving efficiencies and boosting sustainability as a result.
Managing the port call process, coordination among all parties involved is crucial. There are multiple actors involved in the process the terminal, pilots, port authority, maritime authority, stevedores, shipping lines and others. Coordinating so many parties has in the past, been challenging. Over the past decade, however, they have seen technology make an enormous contribution to improving port call efficiency in this respect.
Technology is now able to provide them with more data and numerous ways to be more effective in the operational coordination or the synchronisation of the various actors involved. The collaboration between Port of Algeciras and PortXchange has helped them take great strides in this regard.
