Exploring new methods to keep container shipping safe
Global supply chains hinge on shipping containers. To ensure the transport of supplies to manufacturers and finished goods to distributors, it is important to address issues related to resilience and sustainability of container supply chains (CSCs). The EU-funded TRUST project will explore these issues in terms of risks arising from climate change, cyberattacks and emerging technologies (autonomous ships). Specifically, the project will explore and quantify climate risks, forecast security risks and advance holistic safety approaches with the use of new techniques and environments. Risk assessments will take into consideration historical accidents and stakeholders’ perceptions. The findings will assist with the development of methodologies of CSCs that can withstand risky situations.
