Summary
The logistics and port sector is facing enormous changes caused by the penetration of information and communication technologies into operational and management processes. In this sense, the Ports of the Future (increasingly “smart” and interconnected) are turning into “C-Ports”, real hubs for the creation of value and knowledge based on technology transfer.
Information and communication technologies enable a set of new digital services (“user-centric”, innovative and based on standard architectures, networks, services and data) that allow the continuous improvement of operational and environmental performances.
The adoption of these innovations for the management of maritime and logistics-port processes allows to create the C-Port. It was therefore considered necessary to define a C-Port vector for the evaluation and ranking of ports in relation to their actual and evolutionary "smartness".
The thesis focuses on the Case Study of the Port of Livorno, which, through this approach, is following the so-called “Smart Landscape” paradigm.
Through the creation of an industrial 5G network, the port is proposing itself as a national reference for the experimentation, implementation, and assessment of new digital services enabling a 24/7 port.
