6. Merchant Navy Salary – How Much Do They Earn?
This one we made considering the number of questions we were getting every week on the salary structure of Merchant Navy professionals.
Though we do understand that the exact answer on how much a maritime professional will earn depends on several factors such as nationality, shipping company, type of vessel, rank, qualification, experience, loyalty, etc., we have tried our best to answer the question.
7. Drone Delivers Cookies To Maersk Tanker
This is also an old video but a very interesting and innovative one. It is about Maersk Tankers testing delivery to vessels on drones that have been certified for explosive environments.
In the tankers business, it can be hard to predict far in advance which port will be called next and even when in port, it can be complicated and expensive to deliver items to vessels as they are not alongside the quay.
According to Maersk tanker, costs for a barge are on average USD 1,000 and can be higher. That means drone use could with the current payload bring potential savings of USD 3,000-9,000 per vessel per year.
