Maritime shipping, the entire maritime industry, and maritime infrastructures are the foundation of the economic power of Germany and Europe. Over 80% of global trade by volume is carried by sea, and more than 90% of intercontinental data volume is transferred via undersea cables. The ocean is an indispensable resource and an essential part of the planetary ecosystem: no modern economy can function without its maritime foundations.

What applies on a large scale also holds true for individual companies: the maritime dimension of business models and supply chains is a crucial element of successful strategies for resilience, competitiveness, and sustainability.

While technological advances are disruptively challenging many traditional business models, this creates entirely new challenges for maritime security.

With rapidly increasing digitalization and automation, the use of artificial intelligence, rising geopolitical tensions, the impacts of climate change, and the extensive measures to cope with it, the maritime sector is already in the midst of a highly complex transformation process.

Now more than ever, there is an urgent need for innovative solutions that ensure resilience, security, and sustainable growth.

The high complexity requires interconnected thinking, combining diverse fields of expertise, backgrounds, and perspectives on maritime security. Holistic resilience is more than just defending against threats.

Accident prevention—Safety—hazard management—Security—and sustainability—Sustainability—go hand in hand. They are not only necessary to meet regulatory requirements; they are the basis for competitiveness and crisis-proof success.

At Nexmaris, we support you with our interconnected thinking, innovative solutions, and robust networks. Feel free to contact us!
