The maritime industry is experiencing the rapid adoption of digital tools and services as shipowners look to technology to deliver greater efficiency and reduced costs. Research conducted for Marlink found that 34,000 commercial vessels will have VSAT capabilities by the end of 2020. This will increase to nearly 80,000 vessels by the end of 2029.
But embracing digitalisation is not a part-time process, it demands full commitment and a complete integration of vessel fleets with onshore systems.
To help you assess your current digital strategy and prepare for IMO 2021 compliance, our white paper outlines the many benefits of taking a proactive stance on your onboard IT.
