Sea Transport Industry Digital Plan (IDP)

The Sea Transport Industry Digital Plan (IDP) is a joint initiative with Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA), Enterprise Singapore (ESG) and SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG), as part of the SME Go Digital Programme that makes going digital simple for SMEs. It provides SMEs with an easy-to-use, step-by-step guide to support them in the adoption of digital solutions.


Who is it for?

A digital roadmap of the IDP has been developed for ship agencyharbour craft and bunkering SMEs in the Sea Transport industry and charts out digital solutions that SMEs can adopt at each stage of their growth. Larger enterprises in the Sea Transport industry can also use the digital roadmap to guide their digital journey. The IDP also includes a Digital Roadmap (Training) to ensure that the industry's workforce is adequately prepared with the necessary skills to adopt digital solutions, and is ready for changes that come with digital transformation.
