Abstract or Description

A report published today by the International Committee on Seafarers’ Welfare (ICSW) has found that seafarers’ access to the latest communications technology is taking a back seat because of high investment costs and ports’ concerns about security. Developments in New Technology & Implications for Seafarers’ Welfare was commissioned by ICSW in order to learn more about how port-wide WiFi and WiMAX are helping seafarers to maintain closer contact with home, which is one of the top welfare concerns of seafarers.
