This summer, Japanese freight companies launched two of the world’s first fully autonomous container ships. The development is spearheaded by a consortium including the Japanese nonprofit Nippon Foundation and freight industry partners such as Mitsui Lines and Japan Railway Construction.

In our next issue, we profile Mikage, the autonomous container ship owned by Mitsui Lines, as well as the self-driving ship Suzaku, finding out how the technology behind the vessels works and asking what the ramifications of autonomous vessels will have on the maritime workforce.

In the meantime, you can stay up to date with everything at @ShipTechMag.
