How the Chain will Change: Digital Standards in Maritime Infrastructure



Ulf Siwe, Communications Officer, STM Validation Project, Swedish Maritime Administration, Sweden


Operators of vessel traffic service (VTS) systems are increasingly finding they have the ability to predict challenging traffic situations. This is made possible when ships share their voyage plans with a VTS centre via common digital infrastructure
that has been specially designed for maritime actors. Research shows that 73% of the seafarers feel safer when they use enhanced monitoring services provided from shore and based on the digitalized sharing of their voyage plans. A large majority of port actors, including agents, port controllers and terminal operators, see huge potential for better decision-making by utilizing digitalized and standardized information sharing.
