No doubt, there is a buzz around ‘digitalization’ in the maritime industry!
Tools to digitize the supply chain have been around for a while, but a new era of digitalized vessels and sophisticated fleet operations is emerging.
Shipping companies still seek to understand the benefits that digitalization brings:
- How can ship-shore connectivity be improved?
- How can ‘end-to-end’ management of logistics be improved?
- How can voyage fuel consumption and navigation be optimised?
The report “The Maritime Industry at the Dawn of Digitalization”, commissioned by Marlink with Intelsat and iDirect and conducted by Lloyd’s List Intelligence and Ovum will provide an understanding of the driving forces behind maritime investments in digitalization.
It analyses digitalization requirements in terms of service and functionality and looks at how shipping companies are utilising digitalization to drive performance and profitability.
This whitepaper is essential reading for shipping companies’ senior managers as it will help benchmark their digitalization strategies and will highlight the potential challenges which need to be overcome to realise these benefits.
