Maersk Focuses on Getting Faster

541 Maersk

Maersk is adopting new digital techniques in order to get growing container ships in and out of ports as quickly as possible, an effort aimed to eliminate bottlenecks in supply chains. Solutions include installing flow meters and fuel sensors integrated with weather and sea current forecasts to save fuel, and automating gangways for port officials to come up faster. Maersk has also teamed up with International Business Machines Corp. to launch next year a platform for container shipping transport using blockchain technology. It is the cargo-management version of Maersk’s bid to use technology for ship calls, allowing for deeper tracking of shipments as they move from ship to shore and then to overland delivery, all the time carrying with them data on costs, payments and destinations.
