dc.description.abstractMaritime transportation is the most efficient and cost-effective mode of transport. With the appropriate use of advanced technology, the efficiency of the industry can be improved even further. Information systems for the maritime industry have been generally ignored by the IS community. Consequently, we introduce “Maritime Informatics” as a new stream to introduce IS scholars to the many research and practice opportunities offered by the maritime industry. Our goals are to understand the characteristics, operations, and culture of the industry, as well as some major problems that need improvement. By analyzing previous studies addressing the problems of the maritime transportation industry, we aim to develop a research agenda for information system researchers, with the end goal of creating a more efficient, safe, and ecologically sustainable maritime transportation.
