Dispatches No. 383

Crewconnectivity Survey results are available from: http://www.crewconnectivity.com/

We are delighted to share InterManager’s member Futurenautics survey results. We are especially proud of PTC and Alpha Navigation for their support and assistance in getting their seafarers views seen and heard.

According to nearly 6 000 seafarers surveyed 75% of the seafarers surveyed have access to internet at sea. Best being offshore -81% and worst General Cargo Ships with 44%.

Internet connection is important for seafarers but not as important as being paid on time, having benefits for the family and having job security.

There is plenty of superb statistics in the 52 pages long report.

Shipping is waking up to a new age where digitalisation is re-shaping the world and creating increased opportunity for development and innovation. Revolutionary concepts plus the evolution and advancement of existing platforms are providing unparalleled growth opportunities for shipping and related transport and supply chain infrastructure. However, achieving digital success requires knowledge and understanding, and an ability to drive your company’s digital thinking and transformation rather than be driven by it.


Returning to Hamburg on 24th April, we will investigate how we can harness these opportunities and will debate which are going to stick and really make a difference. We will ask how we can identify the real digital legacy in front of us and truly re-define digitalisation in maritime and transport.


Sessions will include:


  • The Maritime Satcom Summit – Investigating the evolution of maritime mobility and connectivity


  • Harnessing Cyber Resilience and Managing Risk A look at maritime cyber security, safety and risk



  • The iShipping Revolution Redefining Digitalisation in Maritime


  • Roundtable Discussion Groups – Focused on solutions and business strategy
