Rapid technological developments have led to innovations in international commercial port operations worldwide. Leading ports have effectively applied new technologies to integrate their port resources. These ports have used the new technologies to reduce waste, thereby increasing their global influence and economic value. The Internet of things (IoT) enables vehicles, devices, and other items embedded with sensors and actuators to exchange data across an established network. IoT technology has been extensively applied in commercial ports, including in cruise-assisting transportation systems that simultaneously manage port electricity, water, and energy use. This study suggests that technology development and user trust should receive greater attention in the development of Taiwan’s international commercial ports.
