Why Smart Maritime Network?
While a variety of digital innovations and IoT technologies exist in the maritime industry, new technology solutions will only be fit for purpose if they can be operated across multiple carriers, service providers and geographies. Collaboration is essential in this regard, so we can establish the same technology standards throughout the industry. Now, as a part of the Smart Maritime Network, we can work closely with maritime technology developers, vessel owners and operators, engineering OEMs and other key stakeholders, to develop joint approaches that will benefit the entire industry.

André Simha, chief digital & information officer, MSC, said, “We are pleased to join and support Smart Maritime Network, a platform to further promote and accelerate digital transformation across the shipping and transport logistics sectors. Collaborating with other members to solve key industry challenges is of paramount importance to MSC and there is no doubt that this Network opens up new opportunities for these efforts to become a reality, shaping the future of our industry.”

What is Smart Maritime Network?
Smart Maritime Network was launched in 2019 to provide a platform to promote the benefits of enhanced integration, standardisation and data sharing among stakeholders within the maritime and transport logistics sectors. The Network creates a collaborative environment for key influencers in the space to inform and educate the industry on technological developments and innovations. It also provides wider opportunities for relationship building and knowledge sharing.

The Smart Maritime Network discusses and decides upon all Network activity.
Rob O’Dwyer, chief network officer, Smart Maritime Network, said, “Smart Maritime Network is delighted to welcome MSC as a new member. As a company at the forefront of leading transformation and innovation, their role as both a user and driver of digital technologies will provide valuable insights and input to the discussions and ongoing projects.”
