Bilbao, 13 February 2019

 

On 13th February, FEPORT spoke on the current situation and early future of digital transformation within logistics during a roundtable discussion at the World Maritime Week Conference in Bilbao. The Conference gathered key stakeholders in the maritime logistics sector to discuss the key issues facing the sector.

During the conference, Mr. Conor Feighan (Policy Advisor – FEPORT), stressed that the main challenge from a legislative perspective is ensuring that the European Union is equipped with a legislative framework that is “future proof” and is not already obsolete by the time it is being implemented. Mr. Feighan pointed out the recently agreed European Maritime Single Window Environment Regulation as a good example of ensuring regulations are technology neutral and adaptable to future technologies.
