MPA, SSA, IMDA launch maritime digitalisation playbook

This is said to support maritime companies in accelerating digitalisation plans.

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), Singapore Shipping Association (SSA) and Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) have launched the Maritime Digitalisation Playbook (MDP), according to Senior Minister of State for Transport and Health Dr. Lam Pin Min.

This is said to support maritime companies in accelerating their digitalisation plans as the economy reboots and enters a new normal.

The MDP incorporates key findings from the IMDA-commissioned 2020 Digital Acceleration Index (DAI) survey for the sea transport sector to establish the state of digitalisation of sub sectors such as the shipping line, ship management, ship agency and harbour craft.

This is said to help maritime companies, in particular small and medium enterprises (SMEs), to formulate their digitalisation roadmaps, guide execution and benefit from maritime digital platforms covering port clearances and services, trade documentation, as well as trade operations and financing.

Companies can also apply for co-funding from MPA’s Maritime Cluster Fund—Productivity Development (MCF-PD) to develop their digitalisation solutions.
