  • Investigating the influence of e-navigation and S-100 over the computation
           of the weather route

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The weather route presents significant potential in identifying the most efficient route for vessels, enabling the optimisation of distance, time, or fuel consumption. Although there have been notable advancements in most technologies in recent years, weather routing has failed to keep pace with these developments. The purpose of this document is to determine whether a specific IMO’s concept called e-navigation may have an impact on vessel’s route optimisation. Today, mariners are required to integrate heterogeneous data types (hydrographic, weather, oceanographic, etc.) that are transmitted on board via various devices and in diverse formats in order to execute weather routing. When e-navigation becomes operational, relevant marine-related data will be accessible in a standardised format on a unified device. The objective of this work is to examine the potential of S-100 in the context of weather routing and route optimisation for the benefit of navigation. There are two methodologies discussed: manual and automated. A range of S-100-based products will be evaluated in relation to a variety of optimisation algorithms in order to predict whether e-navigation could be advantageous in addressing the weather routing problem. Constraints regarding the implementation of electronic navigation and the mariners’ duties are outlined in the final part of the paper.

  • Transportation system models to analyse ports competition and cooperation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Some global drivers of the shipping market, such as the carriers’ alliance consolidation process and the growing ship sizes have determined critical conditions in standalone ports in the XXI century. The traditional attitude of each port during the XX century was to consider other ports, even if they belong to the same territorial system, as competitors following the postulate of the natural monopoly of access to a territory. However, the necessity to respond to the binding requests of port users and of the ship gigantism brought to different experiences between ports belonging to the same territorial system. New forms of cooperation and competition took place at different levels. The paper presents a theoretical equilibrium model to analyse the competition and/or cooperation scenarios of two, or more, ports belonging to a territorial system. The model is based on the consolidated topological-behavioural paradigm of Transportation System Models (TSMs). The proposed equilibrium model allows to simulate the condition inside a port system, which moves from a competition attitude between ports to a cooperation one, within the same modelling framework. The model could provide to the port authorities, managers, planners and researchers a quantitative tool to understand the competition-cooperation scenarios and to define alternative strategies in relation to the decisions taken by other actors of the market.

  • Deep learning based vessel arrivals monitoring via autoregressive
           statistical control charts

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This paper introduces a methodology for monitoring the vessel arrival process, a critical factor in enhancing maritime operational efficiency. This approach uses deep learning sequence models and Statistical Process Control Charts to track the variability in a vessel arrival process. The proposed solution uses the predictive deep learning model to get a vessel’s estimated time of arrival, produces quality characteristics, and applies statistical control charts to monitor their variability. The paper presents the results of applying the proposed methodology for vessel arrivals at a coal terminal, which demonstrates the effectiveness of the method. By enabling precise monitoring of arrival times, this methodology not only supports efficient ship and port operations planning but also aids in the timely adoption of operational adjustments. This can significantly contribute to operational measures aimed at reducing shipping emissions and optimizing resource utilization.

  • A risk prediction model for Maritime accidents

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study proposes analytical tools to predict maritime accidents involving dangerous goods to help improve maritime safety and preserve maritime and coastal heritage. Maritime accidents of dangerous goods can have devastating consequences, causing loss of life, damage to the environment and economic losses. There have been numerous studies attempting to predict maritime accidents, but most have focused on a single type of accident (e.g. oil spills) or a single region (e.g. Baltic Sea, Maritime Silk Road, etc.). This study takes a different approach, using a global dataset on maritime accidents of dangerous goods from 2010 to 2019 (that includes information on the type of casualty, the location, the amount of material released, the type of material released, the cause of the accident, and the outcome), it applies both a machine learning technique and a statistical approach based on the Fourier distribution of rare events as a dual approach to address the problem. Using the Tyrrhenian area as a case study, the results show that the proposed tools can predict the probability of an accident occurring with an acceptable level of accuracy. The paper can provide a valuable tool for decision makers and stakeholders, who can use the findings to identify regions at risk of maritime accidents and take measures to prevent their occurrence.

  • Attributes influencing port times of container ships

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Shipping of freight by sea is the pillar of international trade. Maritime transport has its crucial nodes in the port systems. One of the main characteristic of ports in the context of maritime transport, is given by the port time of ships from arrival to departure in/from the port, after having completed the loading/unloading operations. It is therefore necessary to know how the different attributes of the ports influence the port times of ships. The most important attributes are then discussed and a multiple linear regression model is estimated. The results obtained are interesting because they highlight the role of attributes that affect the entire port system, such as the ship capacity. The results are important because they make it possible to identify overall investments relating to the single port system in addition to the usual actions to optimize the processing of individual ships.

  • Estimation of near-coastal bathymetry using AIS ship movements

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In near coastal environments, nautical charts provide crucial information for navigation and routing both in real-time operations and during planning stages. The cost of data collection as well as capacity constraints in the processing pipeline make reliable bathymetric information in such areas sparse. Prioritization rules can help guide the efforts to where information is the most valuable. AIS data provide accounts of real ship movements, indicating both desirable paths and minimum depths. We propose a statistical model for combining sparse bathymetric soundings with AIS observations for improved prediction of depths for generation of feasible transportation corridors. The method relies on viewing AIS draughts as censored observations of the true depth. A case-study is performed for the southern archipelago of Gothenburg using the program R-INLA. The non-stationarity caused by having boundaries with known (zero) depth and holes (land) in the domain is handled through discretization. Varying amounts of AIS data, ranging from none to 1824 observations, are used in the experiments. Results show predicted depths within the range of data values, and that inclusion of AIS data serve to push the field down to ensure that traverseable areas are predicted as such revealing corridors in narrow passages where bathymetric soundings are lacking.

  • Cooperation – a key for successful ocean governance

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Man is dependent on clean and healthy seas and oceans, but also on their use in many ways such as maritime shipping, living and non-living resources, generation of renewable energy, tourism, desalination, carbon capture and storage. Using the seas implies massive threats to the marine environment. In applying the principle of sustainable development, a balance between protection and use of the seas has to be achieved by effective and successful ocean governance. This requires close cooperation of states, international organizations and civil society calling up a wide range of difficult aspects, including the areas of cooperation, the actors, how to organize cooperation, the powers of international organizations, the capacity of states to contribute to cooperation, and the financing of cooperation. As collaboration is done by humans it is ultimately crucial to build up good personal relationships of trust and appreciation, which is one of the great achievements of the World Maritime University.

  • Countering crime in Africa’s maritime domain: law enforcement and
           environmental contamination threat intervention

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Crime in the maritime domain has evolved over the past two decades. Its changing face has been influenced by interventions both on land and at sea. This paper ruminates on the interventions applied in combating the phenomenon of maritime crime in the seas off the coasts of Africa, with the focus on law enforcement and the fomenting potential for environmental despoilation. In probing challenges to law enforcement, the paper examines the impact of weak law enforcement when dealing with specific maritime crimes and reveals that to be effective, despite the omnipresent need for swift and decisive policing intercession, any maritime piracy interdiction algorithm/model should fully embrace environmental pollution prevention and mitigation protocols. The influence of statistics and perceptions to the way in which a situation in a particular area is understood or interpreted is also broached. The paper concludes by proffering actionable solutions to the various challenges encountered by maritime policing.

  • An evaluation of maritime simulators from technical, instructional, and
           organizational perspectives: a hybrid multi-criteria decision-making
           approach

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Recent advancements in simulation technology facilitated maritime training in various modalities such as full-mission, desktop-based, cloud-based, and virtual reality (VR) simulators. Each of the simulator modality has unique pros and cons considering their technical capabilities, pedagogical opportunities, and different organizational aspects. On the other hand, enhanced training opportunity and diversity of training depends on the proper utilization of simulators. In this context, the absence of an unbiased, transparent, and robust simulator selection process poses a complex decision-making challenge for the maritime instructors and decision-makers at the institutions. In this study, a hybrid multi-criteria decision-making (MCDM) approach is proposed to evaluate four major types of simulator modalities. For the evaluation, a MCDM framework is developed based on 13 key factors (sub-criteria) for simulator selection grouped under three higher-level criteria—technical, instructional, and organizational criteria. Data was collected using a structured best-worst method (BWM) survey from subject matter experts. The Bayesian BWM is used for ranking of the 13 sub-criteria, and the Preference Ranking Organization Method for Enrichment Evaluation (PROMETHEE) is used to evaluate the four simulator modalities utilizing sub-criteria ranking scores from Bayesian BWM. The results reveal that the regulatory compliance of simulators is the most important criterion, while the cost of simulators is considered the least important criterion during the simulator selection process. Overall, full-mission simulators are the most preferred followed by VR simulators, cloud-based and desktop simulators. However, a sensitivity analysis demonstrated context-specific preferences for certain simulator types over others.

  • Port economics, management and policy studies (2009–2020): a
           bibliometric analysis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This paper analyses published research in port economics, policy and management (port studies) based on examining all relevant academic journal papers published from 2009 to 2020. The systematic review of all 1227 papers relies on quantitative and qualitative bibliometric tools to reveal the structures of the research community (i.e., authors’ country of affiliation, number of authors involved, and international collaboration rates) and the themes and content of port research (i.e., research approaches, units of analysis, ports and commodities examined, levels of research localisation, port markets commonly (not) studied). It also presents a taxonomy of port studies based on a content classification of the themes and sub-themes examined. The paper concludes with a citation analysis that reveals the coherence of port research. The analysis is enriched by comparing the findings with similar studies focusing on the 1997–2008 timeframe. This unique monitoring of a period that expands over a quarter of a century offers a valuable tool for better understanding the research landscape and deciding directions for future research. From a theoretical perspective, the study provides evidence of the rapid transformation of port economics, policy and management into a mature research field.

  • Understanding the impact of global challenges on container shipping: a
           qualitative study in the COVID-19 era

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Global challenges in container shipping can cause periodic disruptions and result in volumetric losses in supply chain operations, which can restrict commercial mobility. Throughout history, major disruptions have been the most significant drivers of change and progress. Therefore, it is crucial to determine the impact of these challenges to develop solutions. The aim of this study is to determine the impact of global challenges that have occurred in the COVID-19 era on container shipping. Qualitative research methods were used to form a study group of twenty-seven industry representatives. The challenges were conceptualized into four main themes. The results of the study showed that the strategic decision areas prioritized include prolongation of the transport time, port congestion, increased shipping cost, and global scale impact. This study allows the impact of global challenges on container shipping to be conceptualized and to identify criteria for decision-making methods.

  • How AI can influence efficiency of port operation specifically ship
           arrival process: developing a cost–benefit framework

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract AI technologies' adoption is increasing in most industries, but their capabilities differ. With the utilization of AI, there is a potential to boost the maritime industry through higher commercial speed and better quality of services. Therefore, AI would be an opportunity to enhance efficiency in diverse aspects of port stakeholders' operations. To evaluate whether AI technologies and their benefits emerge, the consciousness of the costs and benefits of these innovations is essential. There is no cohesive framework concerning AI technologies' cost and benefit thus far. Therefore, this research fills in this gap in the existing literature. An exhaustive literature review is carried out, and a comprehensive framework is developed to identify the costs and benefits of AI technologies used in port operations. To validate this framework, a case study associated with ships' arrival process is investigated. The case study demonstrates that even while a micro-level challenge is tackled through AI, other stakeholders who interact with the challenge owner also can enhance their operation. Moreover, the proof of benefits gained by initial challenge owners can stimulate similar companies to leverage the exact solution for overcoming their challenges.

  • Revisiting marine services pricing in South Africa’s ports

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA) is the landlord and sole provider of marine services in South Africa’s eight commercial ports. Historically, TNPA set port prices for marine (nautical) services below full cost recovery. Price regulation has improved the situation, but substantial reforms are still required. This paper revisits marine services pricing in South Africa’s ports. The methodology employed content analysis to analyse 99 stakeholders’ submissions to the Ports Regulator of South Africa from financial years 2013/2014 to 2021/2022. The results are discussed under four categories of themes: concerns about the above-inflation price increase, suggestions on alternative marine services pricing models, concerns about marine services provision and productivity, and the disputed cross-subsidization between ports and port user groups. Despite above-inflation price increases for marine services, tariffs remain 44% below the global benchmarked mean, whilst revenues from cargo owners subsidise port tenants and shipping lines. The relatively low prices for marine services may exacerbate the sub-optimal levels of investment and maintenance in marine services. The study recommends that marine services pricing reforms incorporate the user-pays principle, be founded on activity-based costing, and adopt a dual-till model. Activity-based costing is considered the international best practice, and it is the preferable approach recommended by several port users in South Africa.

  • Towards autonomous inland waterway vessels — a comprehensive analysis of
           regulatory, liability and insurance frameworks

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The use of maritime autonomous vessels for the inland waterway (IWW) transport can revolutionise the current logistics supply chain and enable the shifting of the cargo transportation from the less efficient road and rail transport modes. However, the lack of guidelines and requirements for the operation and testing of autonomous vessels must be addressed to enable autonomous operations. This study aims to identify the gaps of the prevailing regulatory, liability and insurance frameworks and propose viable recommendations for the operation and testing of the autonomous IWW vessels. The theoretical case study of a next-generation autonomous ship operating in European IWW along with the required key enabling technologies is considered. A systematic methodological approach is followed focusing on the existing, transition and next-generation stages for developing autonomous vessels. The existing stage deals with classifying the identified gaps considering the categories of high, moderate or low severity, whereas the anticipated new stakeholders with associated risks in the context of autonomous vessels are analysed. The transition stage discusses recommendations to mitigate the identified gaps of the analysed existing frameworks by either developing interpretations, amending existing instruments or proposing new instruments. The proposed recommendations demonstrate a pathway towards upgrading the existing frameworks based on the identified severity levels and hence are expected to be beneficial for the policymakers whilst preparing the roadmap for the design and operation of next-generation autonomous ship (NGAS).

  • Examining situational awareness, trust in automation, and workload in
           engine resources management: an evaluation of head-worn display technology
           

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Work in the engine department is currently demanding more monitoring task. However, the current alarm systems that support operators during troubleshooting are deficient. In many cases, operators reach the engine control room (ECR) only to find a false alarm. This problem is likely to aggravate in the future as operators work in smaller numbers or even alone; therefore, task prioritization should be considered in a given context. Therefore, this study examines the application of head-worn displays in engine resources management to improve situational awareness (SA), trust in automation, and workload. A human-subject experiment was conducted using an engine plant simulator. The participants simultaneously performed maintenance and monitoring tasks in two scenarios: work conditions assisted with and without information on the head-worn display used as a cognition aid. Subjective measurement involved filling in questionnaires after each trial, whereas objective measurement used the simulator-recorded data. The results show that the availability of engine parameters and alarm indicators on a head-worn display is less significant in improving situational awareness. However, it can still help develop trust in automation and lower the workload. In addition, head-worn displays improve participants’ prioritization in a multi-tasking environment. The results indicate that examining these findings in actual work environments can help realize the future application of head-worn displays in ship operations.

      Abstract: Abstract Maritime authorities have the administrative responsibility for the safety and security of shipping and the prevention of marine and atmospheric pollution caused by ships. This responsibility involves various tasks that can be supported through effective risk management, but currently, there are no models available to evaluate its level of maturity in maritime administrations. To fill this gap and respond to the needs identified by maritime authorities, this article introduces a new risk maturity model called the R-Mare matrix. This model is built on recent scientific knowledge in the field of risk management, and it has been designed in close cooperation with end-users and maritime risk management experts using the Delphi methodology. As a result of this process, the article provides a qualitative risk maturity matrix specifically tailored to support the self-evaluation of maritime authorities. The matrix consists of 17 state-of-the-art risk management attributes, a five-step risk maturity scale, and associated risk maturity grid descriptions. These elements can be used to evaluate the current risk management performance of maritime authorities, identify areas for improvement, and develop a plan to achieve a higher level of maturity. Overall, the R-Mare matrix model represents an important step forward in this field while laying the foundation for further development.
