Artificial intelligence is being used by fleet managers to improve transportation and strategic supply chain operations. In fleet management, many tools, such as integrated videos, are employed to provide quick and seamless analysis of driver footage.
Fremont, CA: Remember when the Evergreen supertanker became stuck in Egypt's Suez Canal? It almost put the world's busiest waterways in jeopardy, leading thousands of traders to lose money. Many people at the time emphasized the importance of greater planning during shipping times. The tragedy would not have occurred if the massive cargo ship, which was the length of four football fields, had known it would have difficulty getting through the canal. Fortunately, with the use of technology, this type of tragedy could be averted in the future. Artificial intelligence in shipping is attempting to automate autonomous maritime activities in order to improve vessel mobility and forecasting.
AI in Streamlining Logistic Operations
When it comes to moving products from one port to another, the operations go much beyond determining the best route and avoiding maritime traffic. In general, it entails end-to-end logistic management, which would be difficult without technology. Machine learning, powered by big data, allows the shipping industry to make data-driven judgments on logistics movement. Artificial intelligence is being used by fleet managers to improve transportation and strategic supply chain operations. In fleet management, many tools, such as integrated videos, are employed to provide quick and seamless analysis of driver footage. Furthermore, shipping corporations are preparing to develop strategic methods to using artificial intelligence to implement chain management.
AI in Avoiding Maritime Traffic Accidents
The majority of maritime traffic incidents are caused by a lack of preparation and prediction. Despite the fact that the shipping business is at the center of logistic transportation, vessels use very little technology. Because of the lack of technology, almost 90 percent of maritime collisions occur in congested waterways. Artificial intelligence, on the other hand, could negate this. The crew and skipper can anticipate what is to come, thanks to artificial intelligence-based mapping and analysis. It makes use of a daily scenario big data analysis that both onshore and offshore teams can use. The information can be used to make real-time judgments and to avoid traffic accidents.
