The digital evolution of South Africa’s shipping industry

As South Africa’s maritime and shipping industry continues to benefit from technological interconnectivity, the sector is on the brink of a true digital evolution – but requires dynamic changes to be made to its policies.

“The maritime sector is undergoing its own digital transformation. The sector requires increased monitoring, and creates the perfect conditions for The Internet of Things (IoT) to thrive. The IoT impacts all areas of shipping, from cargo carriers to cruise liners and fishing boats,” explains Olivier Ondet, SVP IoT & Analytics, Orange Business Services.

Digital transformation revolutionises maritime shipping

Nearly 96% of the South Africa’s exports are conveyed by sea, and the commercial ports are channels for trade, as well as hubs for traffic between southern African and Europe, Asia, America and the east and west coasts of Africa, according to Brand South Africa, (2017).

“Thus these ports should be using new platforms to enable improved data sharing between different port stakeholders, combining data, interoperability of existing platforms and new apps within the supply chain. Essentially, the solutions are designed to synchronise goods and logistics processes at the port and reduce costs and delays. Furthermore, IoT apps are being used to enable smart tracking of containers and schedule operations,” comments Ondet.

A digitised shipping minimises maritime shipping risk and error

For instance, Transnet National Ports Authority introduced a new port security system for South Africa, to safeguard customer cargo, port users, assets, and to track theft of cargo and damage, according to a Safety4Sea report, (2016). Thus the new system, apart from managing online and real time operations, further strengthens the ports security dubbed as “smart people ports.”

Using blockchain technology offers end-to-end bill of lading access by all entities in a supply chain, from freight forwarders and shipping carriers to port operators and regulators. “Blockchain technology will assist South Africa’s shipping sector to effectively manage all transactions or issuing of new currencies with a higher accuracy, full transparency, quick processing, increased security and a paperless system.

Companies need to implement policies around bring you own device (BYOD) and the appropriate security processes around this.

“As the South African shipping industry looks to leverage on the benefits of the digital age, the future of the industry is in applications, which promise to simplify the shipping cycle. When application are fully adopted, they have the potential to vastly reduce costs and complexity of trading, which could save the industry in costing, reduce errors, reduce time spent in transit and overall improve inventory management,” concludes Eric Piquet, Head of Business Development and Strategic projects in Satellite at Orange Business Services.
