Chapter Four: Smarter Marine Logistics
Dr Martin Stopford will share with us his views on the opportunities for applying innovative I4 technology to improve the efficiency, reliability and environmental performance of the maritime through-logistics system between shippers and receivers. It will reviews the many difficulties faced by the industry in developing "smart systems" over the last 50 years and argues that new I4 technology, including a much more powerful satellite network, can help the industry to take a major step forward in transport performance, especially in the container and small parcel sections of sea transport.
