Tyne joins Connected Ports Partnership

The UK’s port of Tyne has joined the Connected Ports Partnership – a global data and resource sharing initiative that includes the ports of Rotterdam, Gdansk, Helsinki, Hamburg and Los Angeles.

Tyne is the first UK port to join the network of global operators, which aims to transform the way ports operate through a shared logistics system. Through pooling data and resources, the Connected Ports partners hope to achieve efficiency improvements and cost reductions when moving cargo across major trade lanes.

The first step in joining the Connected Ports Partnership will see the port of Tyne adopt shared technology to co-develop a mutual platform for monitoring shipping and environmental data.

Joyce Bliek, director digital business solution at the port of Rotterdam, said: “The Connected Ports Partnership is about co-creating new models of data exchange, and collaboration is vital for sustainable development across international gateways. Ports have a major role to play in using smart technology that can improve global logistics.”
