The progress of artificial intelligence in the marine industry and the development of autonomous ships have already started to revolutionize marine transportation. Pilot projects in Europe, as well as technological innovations lead the way towards shipping of tomorrow. In this context, understanding the underlying challenges and preparing adequately for the upcoming changes are critical for seizing new opportunities as they arise.
