Below Are The Categories Under Which The Nominations Are Open:

During the COVID-19 pandemic maritime companies active in shipping, ports, ship agency, and many other sectors, including logistics, have been in the front line, going the extra mile to ensure that economies keep functioning and the public receives essential goods and sup-plies. WISDOM will present an extra special award this year in recognition of that contribu-tion. This award will go to the company, or group of employees who, in the opinion of the judges, have made the most exceptional contribution to overcoming the challenges presented by COVID-19. This could be by introducing innovative solutions, new ways of working, and introducing and harnessing new technology onboard or ashore to keep supply chains moving and employees and customers safe.
This award recognises the achievements of a shipping company that has been through a significant process of change and improvement, and whose activities have had a particularly significant effect on the region’s maritime sector. Judges will be looking for explanations as to how and why the transformation was made, the strategic rationale behind it, the benefits to the organisation and to customers, investments made to support the change and how the company plans to build further of the achievement.
The Port of the Year Award will go to a Port in the European Union, UK and Eastern EU which, in the opinion of the judges, has made the biggest contribution to the development of port infrastructure in the region. Judges will assess the rationale behind development projects, the investment involved, the project delivery, and any innovative features or aspects of the project.
This award will recognise the organisation that has a product innovation based on green technology which most significantly contributes towards a carbon-neutral future. Judges will examine how efficiently the product(s) addresses the concerns of GHG emissions and environmental pollution, fits in the industry’s long-term decarbonisation plans, and brings a welcoming change to the maritime sector.
The award will go to the organisation which has taken strategic, proactive and innovative security and privacy efforts to help the organisation address real risks, build resilience, increase trustworthiness, and create a conducive environment for doing business and thus enabling the organisation to harness data protection as a lever for business growth.
This award will be given to the organisation that has achieved or demonstrated remarkable fuel efficiency in shipping and other maritime operations through either introduction of a novel fuel and/or technology or reinventing the existing ones to enhance performance. Judges will evaluate multiple criteria including fuel consumption, net emissions, storage and transfer, safety, cost-efficacy and many more to recognise the most innovative approach to maximise fuel efficiency, which also positively impacts the organisation’s overall capabilities.
Technology innovation has emerged as a vital aspect of the shipping business, and this award will recognise a project, product or process that has contributed positively to an organisation and/or the industry, generally, moving towards digitalisation by use of one or more technologies. Judges will be looking for evidence that demonstrates the project, product or process being put forward is genuinely innovative, raises the bar higher, and helps put users ahead of competitors. They will also take into account its uniqueness, the concept behind it, along with its delivery and execution. The nominations are open for all companies that provide the shipping industry with technological solutions, including IT related systems, as well as shipping companies that have developed technology(s) in-house.
