19 – 20.4.2023

A joint two-day maritime seminar and workshop arranged by ITS Finland, ITS Norway, ITS Estonia and Fintraffic in Helsinki, Finland.

ITS Maritime 2023

How Maritime ITS can enable a more multimodal sustainable, digitalised and optimised world

A joint seminar and workshop that ITS Finland, Finntrafic and ITS Norway arrange. The seminar’s mission and the following workshop are to create an expectation of how the Nordic region can enable a sustainable, standardised, and collaborative multimodal ecosystem. We will look at the barriers and challenges, the technological possibilities and how regulation is an important factor for the future of more sustainable, digitalised and optimised multimodal transport and logistics of people and goods.

Why Maritime ITS

International shipping is the lifeblood of world trade. About 90% of all exports are transported by ships. However, the maritime market is small and characterised by many different ICT systems on individual ships, shipping offices, and ports. The cargo is not usually destined for the ports the ship arrives at – it must be transhipped and carried into the hinterland by other transport modes.

Maritime ITS is about an international ITS architecture for the maritime sector contributing to an interoperable and user-oriented maritime digital ecosystem, strengthening maritime safety and improving the efficiency of maritime transport.

Cross-sector ITS investment requires data sharing and technology collaboration between the actors in all forms of transport. This is the starting point for understanding and pushing Maritime ITS. Seen from the land-based ITS – technically, Maritime ITS is mutually interesting for both land and Maritime ITS.

For each of the forms of transport, terminology, standards, principles and concepts must be established to ensure that interaction between the actors can take place seamlessly.

Use of land ITS concepts like CCAM and C-ITS might speed up the implementation of Maritime ITS

ITS Norway and the Norwegian Coastal Administration have started with Finntraffic and ITS Finland, an international forum for Maritime ITS which will lead to international work for the standardisation of information exchange between sea- and land-based logistics operations.

Events are free of charge.

The need for standards, harmonisation in order to adopt to a multimodal transport view Workshop April 20th 2023

Venue: Scandic Marina Congress Center, Katajanokanlaituri 6, 00160 Helsinki
Time: 20.4.2023 09:00-12:00

Workshop content input:

In the field of shipping, the standardization of information and services is of paramount importance, because ships move around the world and the services used by ships must be available regardless of location. Standardization is, however, carried out by several different organizations and in some respects there is inconsistency. The workshop will discuss the situation and harmonization of standardization work carried out by different parties and the maturity and priorities of various standards.

09:00 Welcome Jenny Simonsen and Olli Soininen
09:10 Ørnulf Rødseth, SINTEF Ocean AS – ”The need for harmonisation and understanding the standardisation landscape”
