The Q3 2021 issue of Seaports Magazine explores how ports are not only staying one step ahead, but how they are expanding their reach beyond their borders. Read about how they are brainstorming ideas using adaptive learning and using research to prove their value. Also, see how ports are staying one step ahead of cyberattacks and using technology to redefine the term “hands-on.” Drones are also explored in this issue, and not just for security use. Read about how ports are creatively finding ways to improve their ports and the safety of those that use them by putting eyes in the sky.
