Mark your calendars- Ferry Safety & Technology Conference, May 11- May 12, in New York.

 
The Worldwide Ferry Safety Association is now gearing up for its 2017 Ferry Safety & Technology Conference, which will be held May 11 – 12, at the Pier A (overlooking New York harbor) in downtown Manhattan. Technology is driving change in all facets of the maritime business; in the ferry sector, which provides the primary means of transportation in certain regions of the world, new applications can have a profound impact on vessel safety, crew training, passenger experience, and operational efficiencies.
 
Examples abound: attendees at the conference, now in its third year, will see a new suite of crew e-learning tools that can be accessed via mobile devices. Advances in telematics (including remote monitoring) and weather routing will also be featured, integrated with a discussion of the central conference theme of enhanced safety. But the technology discussions also have important implications for the commercial side of the business, including reductions of fuel and insurance costs.
