Identifying Trends in the Adoption of ICT in Ports to enable Information

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


Port terminals have become a prime example of complex logistics fully
dependent on Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and in recent years, container terminals have been at the forefront of adopting sophisticated ICT solutions. On the other hand, the adoption of ICT for enabling visibility in road haulage operations serving in ports offers several challenges. A multiple case study involving five container terminals in two continents is used to investigate trends in the adoption of ICT used to link road hauliers with logistics operations, namely planning, execution and vehicular communication capabilities. The multiple case also identifies elements of institutional isomorphism to generate a concept model based on obstacles and challenges associated to the adoption of ICT related to interoperability and connectivity in multimodal logistics involving sea transportation and road haulage.
