Create a working group with relevant parties
To build up a clear and comprehensive idea of the potential for OPS at a particular port requires input from many different parties. It is therefore advisable to set up a working group comprising experts and representatives from different stakeholder groups to discuss the issue and create a well-founded business case.

The following stakeholders should be involved:

  • the port authority
  • the targeted shipping lines (frequent-callers)
  • the terminal operator
  • the local community
  • suppliers of electricity and automation technology
  • environmental engineers
