Maritime ITS seminar and workshop in Helsinki
At the event, speakers will discuss recent development and how Maritime ITS can enable a more multimodal, sustainable, digitalised and optimised world.
The seminar’s mission and the following workshop are to create an expectation of how the Nordic region can enable a sustainable, standardised, and collaborative multimodal maritime ecosystem. We will look at the barriers and challenges, the technological possibilities and how regulation is essential for the future of more sustainable, digitalised and optimised multimodal transport and logistics of people and goods.
Why Maritime ITS
International shipping is the lifeblood of world trade. About 90% of all exports are transported by ships. However, the small maritime market has many ICT systems on individual ships, shipping offices, and ports. The cargo is not usually destined for the ports the ship arrives at – it must be transhipped and carried into the hinterland by other transport modes.
Maritime ITS is about harmonizing standards and ICT architectures from the maritime side towards the land-side services. By that, it creates an interoperable and user-oriented maritime digital ecosystem, further strengthening maritime safety and improving the efficiency of maritime transport.
The final program will be available soon!
