Opportunities and Challenges for Norwegian and Greek Companies
believe shipping will still tend to be the supply chain end, for the next five - ten years
think Google and others will be important for technical service in the future
think Google and others will take over the management of ships in the future
Over the last few years, changed value chains have caused shipping companies to evolve into service providers for the logistics industry. For this reason, it is necessary to take a look forward.
Google and other global players are pervading more and more areas of our day-to-day lives. Norwegian and greek shipping companies expect them to become providers of technical services for transport companies but do not think that they are likely to operate ships of their own.
Crewless shipping seem still far away, but both Norwegian and greek shipping companies are becoming open to an idea of ships controlled from land.
Finally, I would like to thank shipping companies for taking time out for the interviews and for providing insights into their companies. I trust that you will find this study interesting and illuminating reading.
