Smart Maritime Council

A new industry body has been launched to explore issues of collaboration, interoperability and standardisation in the application of technology in the shipping and logistics sectors.

Smart Maritime Network was formed in January 2019 to promote the benefits of enhanced integration and data sharing among stakeholders within the maritime and transport logistics sectors, providing a platform to inform the industry on technological developments and innovations while providing wider opportunities for relationship building and knowledge sharing.

A core element of the initiative is the creation of a Smart Maritime Council, a diverse industry membership group including maritime technology developers, systems integrators and other key stakeholders, which will hold a series of meetings to discuss areas of mutually beneficial collaboration on issues relating to the compatibility, standardisation and harmonisation of the technology used in the modern shipping industry.

Vessel operators are also represented within the membership, to provide the end-user’s perspective on maritime technology development and to help to guide the Council’s discussions by making sure that shipping companies’ real-world operational requirements play a central role in future IT development.

The Smart Maritime Council will hold a further five meetings in 2019 after initial discussions in London, with each taking place in a different global maritime centre.

The founding members of the Smart Maritime Council include:

*       ABB

*       AMMITEC

*       Ceragon

*       Cobham SATCOM

*       Danish Ship Finance

*       Dell EMC

*       Dualog
