The IMO has proposed Just-In-Time arrivals and services as one of the short-term solutions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in maritime shipping. The Just-In-Time concept allows vessels to optimize their speed during the voyage. If a vessel earlier knows at which time it is requested to arrive at the pilot boarding place, the vessel can adapt...
