For organizations operating in traditional industries, new digital initiatives can feel like a risky proposition. The Port of Antwerp is one organization that has real-world experience with successfully managing a digital transition. Erwin Verstraelen, Chief Digital Innovation Officer (CDIO) at the Port of Antwerp Authority, and Filip Vandenbussche, Port of Antwerp Representative based in Houston, discussed the port’s digital initiatives with APQC.

This case study looks at both the lessons learned by the port authority in its deployment of prior digital initiatives and its strategy for deploying new technologies, including blockchain, to strengthen the port’s position in the future.
