Over 90% of world trade is carried by the international shipping industry. Without shipping the import and export of goods on the scale necessary for the modern world would not be possible.
Seaborne trade continues to expand, bringing benefits for consumers across the world through low and decreasing freight costs. Thanks to the growing efficiency of shipping as a mode of transport and increased economic liberalization, the prospects for the industry’s further growth continue to be strong.
There are around 50,000 merchant ships trading internationally, transporting every kind of cargo. The world fleet is registered in over 150 nations, and manned by over a million seafarers of virtually every nationality.
Siemens marine software enables naval architects and shipyards to design, develop, construct, and support more efficiently advanced naval, commercial and offshore platforms, reducing the total cost and improving fleet performance.
Fleet owners and operators are modernizing their fleets. Is your shipyard in a position to maximize its share of that market? Not if it is designing and building ships the same way it was five years ago. Our "Future Fleet" perspective demonstrates how you can increase shipbuilding innovation with shipbuilding software to design, engineer and build better and more affordable ships and maximize your share of future fleets.
