Imagine a shipping industry mastered so completely that efficiency permeates every aspect of its complex being.
This is a world where everything is connected; where vessels voyage between harbours using only the cleanest available fuels. Where onboard power production is optimised, and routes are precision-planned to avoid hasards to navigation at sea. Traffic flows are managed so effectively that ships no longer wait to dock in congested harbours. Where sustainable energy supply chains and clean port technologies help preserve the living standards in marine cities and beyond.
To make this happen we need collective actions to achieve a smarter maritime ecosystem. In recognition of this, SEA20 was born.
