This chapter presents how digital transformation could inspire innovation within the supply chain in ports. It consists of three core themes: digital supply chain transformation, port information modeling, and innovation and integrated supply chain management. In particular, it aims to aid in understanding the background of why digital transformation within ports is vital and how this transformation could be implemented. The chapter enhances the understanding of what digital supply chain transformation (digital SCx) is and how the implementation of a collaborative culture could enhance the added value of a port by using an innovative and integrated environment. A key lesson presented is that digital transformation, though originated from technology, is equivalent neither to information technology nor to information systems. More importantly, the reader should understand that the journey through the digital SCx and its integration with the management of a port will be achieved through port information modeling (PIM) and the hierarchy of human understanding, both of which are derived on the basis of the building information modeling (BIM) paradigm.
