Entering the 21st century, in 2020: digitising shipping

0 (0stemmen)

Of all the world’s industries, shipping is surely among its most technophobic. A Boeing 787 airliner produces about 500 times as much data per day as the biggest container ships. Most sea cargo travels with paper “bills of lading” rather than e-tickets. Some shipping firms still deal with customers mainly by fax.

Today, however, Maersk Tankers announced plans to spin off its data-analytics department into a separate division, which it believes could help speed up digitisation—and make the industry greener.

ZeroNorth will crunch data for ship operators, to maximise performance while minimising fuel consumption and emissions. Soren Meyer, its chief executive, says that if the world’s 33,000 tramp freighters adopt its technology, the industry could prevent 50m tonnes of carbon-dioxide emissions and increase revenues by $12bn over the next five years. ZeroNorth wants a slice of that—while showing that shipping can be both green and profitable.
