The world is being digitized. The steady advance of information and communication technology and the ever-increasing amounts of data will continue to drive unprecedented change.
Even traditional industries like shipping are ripe for substantial change. We believe the main drivers of change in our industry will be access to, and processing of, big data, automation of knowledge work, Internet of Things, and limitless connectivity at affordable prices. We do not have all the answers as to where this will take us – we might well live to see unmanned vessels, robotised trading, online market places for shipping and new ways of sharing on digital platforms – but we firmly believe that these changes can be shaped and turned into new opportunities. We believe the future winners are those who embrace digital opportunities.
