Abstract

Shipping is fast moving towards digitalisation and minimising human intervention in itsprocesses. This article intends to explore the implications of such changes in human elementcompetencies across core-stakeholders such as Ports, Vessel Traffic Services (VTS) andInformation and Communication Technology (ICT) providers. It is apparent from the findingsof this article that digitalisation is assisting stakeholders to be efficient and competitive. Thistrend is complementing the implementation of autonomous ships that depends on stakeholdersfor safe and efficient operations. However, as stakeholders continue to automate the processespreviously performed by humans, the required physical and manual skills of employees woulddecline. Alternatively, future employees would require multitasking and cross-functionalcompetence at all levels. It is also evident that future employees of these stakeholders wouldrequire to have a degree of technological competence to be to perform their jobs.
