Over 90 per cent of international trade depends on maritime transportation, which is crucial to the global economy since it provides a reliable and affordable alternative to other modes of transportation. However, shipping alone contributes to nearly 3 per cent of the world's greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This prompted the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and private enterprises to launch campaigns to promote green shipping and make environmental sustainability a priority.

The latest research progress in robotics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) helps autonomous driving technology become more and more applicable in daily life and industry scenarios. The robotaxi and the autonomous trucking systems are built mainly based on vehicle onboard sensors and computing units. As the operation domain on public roads involves large-scale scenarios regarding locations and objects, an intelligent vehicle must be able to make its decision with its own perception and localisation inputs.

The world is in the middle of the electric revolution. The change from fossil fuel-driven machines to electric-driven has affected almost all industries in one way or another. As always with new technology, it brings new and exciting possibilities, but it also comes with the risk of misunderstandings, insecurity, and even fear, as new technology like electrified vehicles and machines replace old well-known diesel-driven alternatives.

In the intricate tapestry of global commerce, where the seamless transit of goods in containers forms the new standard, the role of container breach detection devices emerges as both pivotal and prescient. These devices, far from being mere technical fixtures, serve as a crucial line of defense against illicit activities such as the theft of goods, the smuggling of contraband and the infestation of narcotics.

By understanding where critical health and safety risks are in the cargo sector, we can better manage them. ICHCA has been collating publicly available information from around the world on the most severe consequences of personal workplace accidents in cargo handling. If we can learn lessons once and make sure that they stay learned, then our people get to go home in the same condition that they started their shift.
