Korean Government Aims to Cut Maritime Accidents by 30% by Introducing Marine Navigation Services

Marine navigation services will provide automatic collision and grounding alerts, remote monitoring of fire and capsizing risks, optimal route guidance, electronic hydrographical charts, ship entry and departure information, and marine safety and weather information in real time. The ministry explained that marine navigation services are expected to reduce maritime accidents 30 percent.


In addition, the ministry will promote international standardization of the smart marine transportation system. It plans to secure marine digital source technologies and establish an international marine digital governance system centered around Korea.


Marine experts say that a new 30-trillion-won market will be created when the shipping, shipbuilding and logistics markets use digital systems under the policy of maritime digitalization. The ministry plans to operate a testing site for new technologies with major countries in Korean waters and lead international cooperation by signing business agreements with those countries.
