This first book on Mari Informatics describes the potential for Mari Informatics to enhance the shipping industry.
It examines how decision making in the industry can be improved by digital technology, and introduces the technology required to make Mari Informatics a distinct and valuable discipline. Based on participating in EU funded research over the last six years to improve the shipping industry, the editors stipulate that there is a need for the new discipline of Mari Informatics, which studies the application of information systems to increasing the efficiency, safety, and ecological sustainability of the world’s shipping industry. This book examines competition and collaboration between shipping companies, and also companies who serve shipping needs, such as ports and teals. Practical examples from leading experts give the reader real world examples for better understanding.
