The Port of Zeebrugge has joined the International Port Community Systems Association (IPCSA), the company said in its release.“We want to keep up to date on developments in other ports and offer the expertise of Zeebrugge to work on an international system that can benefit all port users,” said Peter Merlevede ICT manager at the Port of Zeebrugge. “We believe in digitalization and standardization and want to be an active member of IPCSA – participating in these developments in a community that is broader than Zeebrugge port alone. We know that exchanging ideas and discussing experiences is always valuable for all parties involved.” Zeebrugge strongly believes that digitalization is an important step in retaining the port’s competitiveness, said Peter Merlevede. “In anticipation of a Brexit for instance, the Port of Zeebrugge has developed RX/Seaport, a data-sharing platform that offers a digital connection between all links in the logistics chain. The system is ready for use when Brexit occurs, but the applications of the system can be used in many other situations.”
