Autonomous shipping

Lloyd's List Maritime Intelligence

Initial proposals for fully-autonomous shipping have reached the clear light of day: remotely-controlled merchant vessels will take longer to bring into operation than had been thought. But the past five years has shown there is real excitement within the maritime community for innovation that will change the way shipping works. Business models will change, trading patterns will change, seafaring will change.Where is Autonomous shipping today, and what technology is under construction to push it further? What developments are under way in the aviation, automotive, and trucking sectors that will have a bearing on how shipping will evolve? How will Autonomous shipping fit with designs for the Autonomous supply chain?

The battery-electric truck market is at an early stage, with fewer than 60,000 units in circulation worldwide, including approximately 20,000 units sold in 2021. Ninety percent of these were sold in China, and most were on the lighter side of the category,
between 3.5 and 8 tons. However, significant growth in the market is expected in the coming years as more governments and truck manufacturers set combustion engine truck sales phase-out targets, more models become available, and production capacity is increased. A robust charging infrastructure ecosystem, along with sufficient grid capacity, must be deployed early enough not to impede the growth of the electric vehicle fleet.
