Big Data and AI within maritime


The reason why globalization has grown so fast over the last decades is mainly due to the maritime industry. The shipping sector has a share of 90% of commerce on a global scale, meaning the annual value exceeds 14 trillion US dollars. This led them to generating a lot of data. The way we see it at R&C Desk, data is an important aspect of doing business since it enables companies to base their choices on analytics and trends.

What is Big Data? 

Big Data is a tool that consists of a combination of more complex and large data, creating a centralized system for storage, analysis and simultaneous retrieval. 

A significant number of shipping companies worldwide are now embracing this tool, leading the charge in a groundbreaking revolution eagerly anticipated by the entire industry.

Here follow a few points of how AI and Big Data are benefitting the shipping industry:
- It prevents making mistakes that end up costly for companies by using automated analysis. 
- For a lot of big companies, it is difficult to keep track of why vessel get lost at sea or why the quantity of containers at ports no longer matches. 
- This system receives regular updates on these issues which leads to increased efficiency and avoids costly mistakes.
