Digitalisation and the seafarer of the future

The global supply and demand for seafarers has been a hot topic over the last few years and the role of the seafarer in the future is an equally pressing question.

Digitalisation is bringing a wave of change and predicting the future skillsets required by seafarers has sparked debate. While there can be no blanket approach to answering these questions in the maritime industry, technology is transforming how work gets done, and we might consider the role of seafarers changing through evolution, rather than a revolution.

  • potential opportunities,

  • transformative technologies and,

  • what is needed from the crew of the future.
