Launch of ‘Internet use in Shipping’ Survey 2011
Our annual ‘Internet use in Shipping’ survey is now live and we would be very grateful if you could spare a couple of minutes of your time to give us your input with the results to be presented at SmartShipping later this month.
Last year’s survey proved that the shipping industry was adopting internet business processes, but there were still obstacles – namely a lack of understanding and familiarity – which limited the use during a busy working day for shipowners, managers and suppliers, so we want to see if attitudes have changed. Find out more about internet use in shipping.
