As Covid-19 vaccines are deployed worldwide, we ask: what role will shipping play in their distribution, and will this require investment in new technologies?
We speak to Høglund Marine Solutions about the challenges involved with integrating automation with existing container hardware, and find out more about the ethos behind maritime safety specialist RightShip’s rating system for shipping sustainability.
Focusing on the UK, we highlight what barriers remain to the use of autonomous ships, find out why the UK’s Port of Tyne is setting a green example for other ports to follow, and explore the future of shipbuilding in the country after Brexit.
We also ask key questions about the Port of Rotterdam as it strives to become the ‘smartest port in the world’ and find out how maritime careers will change in the wake of Covid-19.
