Diagnosis of the digilatization of the Spanish ports: End to End tool

Title variants
Languages of publication
The adoption of IT/IS has repeatedly paved the way for the modernization of maritime ports. Despite the growing importance of information systems in solving current and future challenges, little attention has been paid to this topic in the area of maritime logistics. The march of digitalization continues to change the logistics processes in modern seaports. This study presents a tool called End to End Tool that allows to obtain a picture of the past, present and future situation around the digilatization of Spanish ports, it is a model of observation of the environment and the most representative factors. It allows to know the reality of the conditions of the port environment where the digilatization has been thought to be developed, moreover, in its final phase it allows to establish the possible scenarios of digilatization for Spanish ports, highlighting as main conclusion that there is still a long way to go in digilatization, such as making an immediate conversion to digital, intelligent and green ports, which optimize the existing infrastructures with a plus of capacity thanks to the intelligent management of spaces.
