The European Union and all its member countries submitted a paper on digital exchange of vessel route plans that can lead to increased safety, reduced administrative burden and more efficient operations, combined with reduced environmental impact. It is an important building block in IMOs Maritime Services to achieve massive fuel and emissions savings through just-in-time arrivals.

LISA (Linking Sea and Land) aims to establish a long-term process to support cross-sectoral digitalization efforts in transport and logistics in the Baltic Sea Region. This process will help to facilitate joint initiatives and joint project applications linking land and sea in the Baltic Sea Region and with that increase connectivity and intermodality and thus support a greener and more efficient transport system.
Simon Cooke, Sperry Marine: “We were pleased to contribute to the development of the revised RTZ 1.2 format. This was a good example of the industry working collaboratively together and adoption of the improved format will improve the reliability of route exchange between ECDIS and other equipment in the coming years.”
In November 2020 the Croatian Ministry of the Sea, Transport and Infrastructure contracted extension of the national Vessel Traffic Management Information System (VTMIS) with Sea Traffic Management functionalities.
The year 2020 will most likely go to history for the pandemic that turned the world as we knew it upside down leaving a wet blanket of isolation and worry over “Business as usual”. Things in our everyday life such as going to an office and seeing colleagues, family and friends that we had always been taking for granted were suddenly exotic and out of reach for many of us. Despite all problems the lion’s share of the world fleet still sail our oceans bringing Christmas presents to dear ones near and far and digitalization has been fast forwarded and stress-tested to an extent we could not have imagined. So what have happened during 2020 from an interoperable digital Sea Traffic Management point of view?
