Connect2Small Ports project aims at supporting the development of South Baltic small and medium ports by helping them to implement digital solutions, and thus give a competitive advantage. Distribution of digital technologies for transport in South Baltic ports and their service portfolios is very limited, not shared and not integrated on the cross-border level. These digital technologies on which the project focuses are of two sorts : Internet of Things (IoT) and Blockchain. IoT is basically connecting items (containers, port equipments) to an online network. Port authorities, shipping companies and other interested partner would then be able to track, and get information from, containers, vehicles etc. Blockchain will allow paperless administration follow-up, as contracts / decisions / communications will be saved and archived, a new version being securely created without compressing the previous ones. This toll is especially useful in cross-border shipping business.
