Athens, Greece. May the 26th, 2020 – The discussion on the digital transformation of shipping and the changes it will bring about in the industry has raged over the past years. Our management team has published a conceptual paper on the latest developments related to unmanned vessels and how they will affect the maritime industry. The main theme of the paper is the discussion about the implications of digitalization on the maritime industry’s structure. Digital transformation may “enhance value within the industry’s ecosystem”, but on the other side may also “pose a very particular threat to the identity of the shipping industry as we know it”.
