Digital transformation has been bringing sweeping changes across all industries. In shipping, the evolution has been progressive but slow. Ironic for an industry that has a key role in almost every industry in the global marketplace today.

But the reality is the shipping industry has been experiencing the drag of slow growth hampered by great operational complexities, stiff competition, evolving cross-border challenges and shrinking margins.
