APH-World Bank: Accelerating Digitalization: Critical Actions to Strengthen the Resilience of the Maritime Supply Chain

The S/CIP is pleased to announce the Working Paper on Accelerating Digitalization: Critical Actions to Strengthen the Resilience of the Maritime Supply Chain, co-authored by The World Bank and the International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH), World Ports Sustainability Program (WPSP).

Several global organizations, such as United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), World Customs Organization (WCO), World Trade Organization (WTO), and International Maritime Organization (IMO) have been advocating the accelerated digitalization of cross-border processes and documentation. This report highlights the immediate, short-, and medium-term measures considered necessary to strengthen the resilience of the maritime and logistics sector, to build back better, and more importantly ensure countries realize the significant potential efficiency gains of digitization. This report underlines digitalization as not solely a technological issue, but also as human capital and institutional issues. Any move towards increased digitization will require a high level of political commitment, while the establishment must have an appropriate legal, regulatory, and policy framework at the national level, across the different disciplines of the maritime, port, clearance agencies, and the transport and logistics sector.
