Accenture and SIPG Blueprint the Future

Accenture Connected Port
Global container port traffic has been witnessing slow growth, causing competition among port operators. In the past, ports took advantage of their geographical locations to increase revenue and achieve volume growth. The strategy is no longer sustainable.

While it is imperative for the port industry to transform and upgrade its positioning, the port operators also need to develop new value propositions and competitive advantages for differentiated growth. 

According to the joint study by Accenture and Shanghai International Port (Group) Co., Ltd., the answer lies in digital. The "port + digital" strategy can help unlock the efficiency bottlenecks by connecting all stakeholders in the port and trade ecosystem, big and small, locally and internationally. Future ports should look to leverage digital opportunities and operate as "Connected Ports," connecting the nodes of supply chain and providing digital trade corridors for world trade.

This is the result from a combination of complications, from homogenized infrastructure and operations, allying shipping lines and larger vessels to an increase in capital expenditure and operating expenses.

The ever-increasing use of Internet and digital revolution has re-defined most B2C sectors. And we foresee that in the coming decade, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and other new technologies will further accelerate the integration of the overall logistics ecosystem.

Sitting in the pivotal node of global supply chain, ports connect machineries, vehicles, infrastructure, and participants along the value chain, are an ideal incubator for such transformation.
