When we refer to urban planning and infrastructures, we normally focus on bridges and roads, railway lines and utilities. Port management, however, is something that is rarely given the attention on a par with its economic importance, to a large extent because these facilities have a high degree of autonomy, and their expansion, when required, does not seem to generate any form of reaction, which may be the case with the expansion of an airport.Perhaps that is why many citizens are not really aware of the fact that large commercial ports are basically cities within cities; an aspect explained in great detail by those attending the Smart Ports seminar at the Smart City Expo World Congress 2019. Very often these facilities have their own power generation plants, quarantine areas and health facilities.But how can German vans be sent to the United States for parts to assemble them following Just in Time (JIT) methods? How can Peru easily export perishable goods to Spain? The key lies in an extraordinary resource optimisation normally only found in the most avant-garde factories.
