White paper: The future of shipping

How to enable just-in-time arrivals and eliminate wasteful practises in shipping operations? Digital technology, connectivity and collaboration to combat the untimely arrival of ships to ports

The marine industry is changing. The competitive environment within the industry and regulator requirements are creating the need to address the industry’s established ways of working with a new set of criteria. One of the main sources of inefficiencies, or waste, in maritime transportation is the unnecessarily excessive speeds at which ships sail to arrive at port only to have to wait for a berthing slot.

This white paper provides comprehensive information on how just-in-time arrivals can be achieved through the collaboration of technology providers, ship operators, port co-ordinators and classification societies. This, to eliminate unnecessary fuel consumption and emissions, both during the voyage and at anchor.
