“To enable further digitalization, establishing single standards is a prerequisite, so this is a good initiative,” Andy Lane, port expert and partner at CTI Consultancy, told JOC.com. “It might require a separate or neutral entity to drive it, however, which might be an existing association such as [the International Association of Ports and Harbors] or a new entity. The primary challenge will always be reaching fast consensus and moving expeditiously forward with frameworks.”
This is (pretentious) jargon-laden prose that is written for those specialists in port management who have become uncritically used to this way of talking. Do not be impressed by it.
The primary challenge will always be reaching fast consensus and moving expeditiously forward with frameworks. = It will first be important to agree on, and make arrangements for, running ports.
