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.
