Future of Shipping - Digitalisation


The Maritime Perspectives Series concludes with the Future of Shipping: Digitalisation webinar, jointly organised by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA).

Shipping, the backbone of the world economy, is undergoing a digital transformation. These challenging times have highlighted the need for greater resilience in global supply chains and the benefits that digitalisation offers. However, the maritime sector has yet to unlock digitalisation’s full potential. How can digitalisation make shipping and ports more resilient, efficient and green? How do we collaborate to address the challenges involved and to increase access to the benefits? What should be the next step for digitalisation in the future of shipping and ports?

The webinar has concluded. Catch the full video recording below.
