Academic publisher Springer is to publish a second book on the subject of Maritime Informatics this week, a follow-on volume from its first book in 2020 with contributions from a range of new authors involved with major maritime stakeholder groups, as well as perspectives from outside the shipping industry.
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.
