NAVTOR is heavily involved in a number of research projects that create platforms for innovation in e-Navigation and will share the experience from this to describe how the emerging technology is expected to transform the four stages of the Passage Planning procedure in the very near future. NAVTOR believes that e-Navigation has already started to transform the passage planning process, and it will result in enormous time savings for navigators when preparing voyages – which means increased efficiency and consequently cost savings.

The world is being digitized, and the steady advance of information and communication technology and the ever-increasing amounts of data will continue to drive unprecedented change. This means that even traditional industries like shipping will go through great changes. It could also play an important part in making shipping greener and more sustainable.
