The last decade has been challenging for the shipping industry, with fast-changing technology advancements, new global industry regulations and shifting world trade patterns. The recent COVID-19 crisis has further exposed the vulnerabilities of many businesses and put a renewed urgency for digitalisation to mitigate the disruptive impact on the global supply chain.
Recognising that digitalisation can help companies unlock new opportunities and empower employees to be innovative, efficient and productive to create more value for customers and shareholders, SSA co-developed the Maritime Digitalisation Playbook (MDP) with the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) and Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA), to help maritime companies with their digitalisation journey.
The MDP is designed as a guide to help companies assess their digitalisation maturity vis-à-vis the maritime sector. It is also a useful aid for companies new to digitalisation to formulate their digitalisation strategy, and help those that have developed their digitalisation plan review and rethink if their roadmaps need to be reshaped as digitalisation shifts the maritime landscape.
The MPD is organised into three sections – Discover, Framework, Resources. Companies are strongly encouraged to read the guide in its entirety at least once to have a good understanding of the state of digitalisation of the sea transport sector, and how to use the MDP effectively. Complementing the information in the MDP are Annexes and Templates. The Annexes include case studies on how companies in the sub-sectors such as shipping lines, ship management, ship agency and harbour craft are harnessing technologies across the value chain. The editable Templates enable companies to develop or redefine their digitalisation vision and roadmap to achieve their digitalisation ambition.
