The international shipping industry is responsible for the delivery of about 90% of world trade. As a major contributor to the world’s economy the industry continues to expand and adapt to ensure consumers across the world are benefiting from affordable food and goods. Now more than ever shipping companies are relying on satellite communications to track, monitor and connect their high value assets.
