Maritime IoT Landscape in the next decade
The maritime industry is evolving: smarter ships, intelligent cargo tracking, automation and a host of fringe technologies are beginning to make an impact on the way shipowners do business. All will come together to form new standards across the next decade. Maritime operators will steadily automate operations, deal proactively with maintenance, improve security and develop greater visibility across their end-to-end supply chain.
Optimized day-to-day operations at sea, at port and as part of a wider logistics network.
Proactively directed operations to keep vessels moving and in profit.
Downtime elimination and emission targets fulfillment with immediate impact on bottom lines.
Automatic cargo checks records for the whole supply chain to trace and track.
Crewless ships would operating as part of a wider connected ecosystem.
