Digital Ship Event to be Held in Hamburg

The impact of innovation and new technologies on shipping is the focal theme of "Digital Ship" held in Hamburg in late February

The maritime industry is more dynamic than ever, with new technologies and innovations being implements to enhance operations and eco-friendliness. While unlocking exciting business potential, they also allow to better tackle organisational challenges. On 25-26 February, Digital Ship will ask in Hamburg how the industry can adapt to these new technologies, and harness innovation to build sustainability, agility and efficiency into their businesses? And, last but not least, how technology is changing the way shipping companies operate and do business?
