This latest book provides new and additional perspectives that cover topics not covered in detail in our first book on maritime informatics. It does also put a lot of references to the content of the first book. A total of 43 highly-regarded contributors (32 practitioners, and 11 researchers) from 14 countries cover 6 sections, providing further background and insights into the current status and future directions of Maritime Informatics from the perspective of recent practical experience.
The book examines the latest thinking on supply chains in support of global emergencies, recycling resources and the circular economy, ports acting as multidimensional hubs, the standardisation of data, and the emergence of data sharing platforms in the global container trade.
Maritime Informatics – Additional Perspectives and Applications aims to complement the ideas presented in the original Maritime Informatics book from last November. It has been prepared by the same Editors but features a host of new voices within the text.
The book contains six chapters on maritime technology and supply chain data exchange, namely:
Responding to Humanitarian and Global Concerns with Digitally Enabled Supply Chain Visibility
Digitalisation in a Maritime Circular Economy
Ports as Multidimensional Hubs
The IMO Reference Data Model: One Solution Fits Most!
The Role of Industry-Based Standards Organisations in Digital Transformation
Boosting the Effectiveness of Containerised Supply Chains: A Case Study of TradeLens
The digital e-book version of the publication will be made available by Springer from the end of this week, with a hard copy expected to be published later this year.
