Interoperable data standards are the way forward for digitising the shipping sector rather than a single, dominant, proprietary platform. According to this op-ed article in Splash 24/7, while the latter may sound utopian, the realities of human nature would get in the way, leaving the haves and the have-nots. Instead, the way forward would be to allow platforms to communicate with one another, based on a single set of data standards. Doing this would remove the power of the single platform – which in all likelihood would become too powerful and liable to suffocate innovation.
