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
