Logistics

How much do you know about digital shipping? Have you ever heard of a Smart Ship? As digitalization becomes more prominent in maritime logistics, technologies like Artificial Intelligence and blockchain are changing the logistics sector. Thanks to this digitalization, vessel tracking and estimated time of arrival (ETA) are accessible in real-time, and the maritime sector is witnessing less catastrophic unforeseen events like a ship collision that causes hundreds of TEU containers to fall into the ocean. The logistics sector is becoming more efficient than ever before.

Why Should I Care About Logistics?

Every day we use products shipped by global sea trade; for example, salt, soap, sugar, drinks, books, and electricity just to name a few. Therefore, without allows recognizing it, logistics impacts our everyday life. Logistics is at the center stage of the supply chain 

Every year vessel size increases while more goods are consumed, and thus more products are shipped by sea. This increase in demand by the human population is affecting logistics. Logistics must catch up to demand or the global supply chain will face many issues. When the global supply chain is impacted, this affects businesses and daily lives worldwide.

Vessel routes and practices must be optimized. Efficient logistics planning reduces costs and improves efficiency. Maritime actors are realizing that logistics affects the entire end-to-end supply chain, and therefore logistic transparency is important. 

Digitalization, digital shipping, and Smart Ships are revolutionizing logistics and providing transparency. They are using Artificial Intelligence, big data, and sensors to track ships and ensure ship safety. 

Effective logistics and global trade require a lot of skill and coordination between multiple entities. Digitalization clarifies logistic activities.

What Is a Ship Tracker?

A ship tracker, also known as a vessel tracker, uses technologies and equipment to track ships along their route. A ship tracker uses real-time data to constantly update maritime actors about a ship’s voyage status. 

This use of advanced technology allows us to know the exact location of a ship as well as an accurate estimated time of arrival (ETA)

Ship trackers are revolutionizing the maritime industry and global supply chain. 

The technologies that track ships also help to predict the best vessel route depending on weather and tidal predictions. Vessel tracking leads to safer routes in the case where a ship can avoid originally unforeseen weather events on their trajectory. 

Digital ships use vessel tracking among maritime actors and other ships. 

In today’s digital world where autonomous smart shipping is seen as the future of the maritime industry, these digital vessel tracking systems will continue to gain popularity. 

These autonomous ships will increase the transparency and efficiency of the global supply chain while reducing costs and improving safety.
