The theme of the Q4 2020 issue of Seaports Magazine is Picture the Future, which encompasses not only the visual aspect, but also the high-tech aspect that ports are navigating when it comes to automation, 5G, artificial intelligence, Internet of Things, cybersecurity, digitalization, extended reality and blockchain.
Features in this issue of Seaports Magazine delve into the ideas that are both practical and creative, such as starting a port photo contest or ramping up your port’s social media presence. There are also ideas for increasing your port’s sustainability efforts – and doing more than what’s required instead of just the bare minimum.
Also, read about how ports are figuring out which technology is critical for a future port and when (and how) it should be incorporated. Plus, find out more about ACCELerate – AAPA’s new workforce development initiative – which already had 260 apprentices enrolled along with 10 member ports/companies at press time. This Department of Labor funded program provides grant money to eligible ports and companies as part of DOL’s “Closing the Skills Gap” initiative.
