EMPA – The maritime pilot is an indispensable human resource
While digitalization is undoubtedly a major transformation underway in the maritime industry, we must not forget the essential role played by humans in bringing ships to dock. A pilot is capable of escorting a ship with the appropriate level of safety, even if the digital means are failing and the weather is threatening. In the way we imagine the "port of the future", the smartest option is to consider the complementarity between pilotage on the ship and the automation of certain operations. As part of our "human capital" content block, we were pleased to give Captain Erik Dalege, President of the European Maritime Pilots Association, the opportunity to write an opinion piece.
