Intelligent maritime corridors: Understandings, challenges and roadmaps

Each commercial maritime corridor has its history of development, among which are corridors that are more advanced than others in terms of governance, logistics and technological performance, especially for MASS. Intelligent Maritime Corridors (IMC) development presents multiple challenges within a jurisdiction and internationally.
