Augmented Reality in Maritime Transport

Explore real-world applications where advanced AR technology has revolutionized sea shipping operations

Maritime Role in Global Trade

Maritime transport is crucial for global trade, providing an efficient, cost-effective way to transport goods worldwide. They standardize and streamline cargo movement, enhancing the reliability and security of international supply chains. Thus, they are vital to the functioning of global industries and play a key role in sustaining economic growth and market integration.


Technological Urgencies

UNCTAD highlights the urgent need to accelerate digital transformationusing cutting-edge technologies, including artificial intelligence, AR and smart maritime logistics. All that enhances safety, particularly for dockside workers, cargo handlers, and ship crews.

Staff Efficiency and Skills

Implementing digital operations and technology-enhanced AR training can significantly boost efficiency and skill levels among the staff. It provides optimized workflows, reduced operational errors, and a more proficient workforce.

Electronic Trade Documents And Regulatory Reform

Offshore shipping must adopt electronic trade documents, such as electronic waybills, to increase efficiency and reduce costs. A legal framework is also needed to recognize and manage growing cyber threats.

Port Productivity Reform

There is a need to increase port efficiency through digitalization, trade facilitation, and sustainable infrastructure. The industry requires stakeholder collaboration for resilience and using big data for informed decision-making and transparency.
